DAYTON, Ohio — A prosecutor’s office says an 18-year-old man accused of causing the death of his 14-year-old half-sister killed by a stray bullet fired into her home has been charged with murder.
A statement from the Montgomery County’s prosecutor’s office says Jason Tidwell also was indicted Thursday on other charges, including felonious assault and tampering with evidence. Authorities say Tidwell and 18-year-old Dylan Angel were fighting July 5 outside Mackenna Kronenberger’s home when gunshots were fired and one shot entered the girl’s home, killing her.
Messages seeking comment from Tidwell’s attorney weren’t immediately returned Friday.
Angel also was taken into custody, but the prosecutor says the grand jury declined to indict him on felony charges due to insufficient evidence and he would be released. Court records didn’t indicate an attorney for Angel.
