BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) — Court records show the man charged with fatally shooting an Ohio deputy in February will enter a plea next week.
Twenty-four-year-old Wade Edward Winn is accused of shooting through a wall at sheriff’s deputies, killing Deputy Bill Brewer and wounding another deputy during a standoff at an apartment in the county east of Cincinnati. Authorities say Winn shot the deputies after he faked killing himself during the Feb. 2 standoff.
Winn has pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated murder and 12 counts of attempted aggravated murder.
Clermont County Prosecutor Vincent Faris said Thursday a plea hearing will be held Monday. Both sides remain under a gag order. Faris says he won’t comment until after the hearing.
A news conference is scheduled following the hearing.
