Friday, January 9, 2009
HART: John Roswell, 37, of Hart was arrested Friday for careless
discharge of a firearm causing death as the result of the shooting of
Anthony Fuller while hunting on Thanksgiving Day, 2007.
Roswell was hunting with three other individuals about 10:30 a.m. in
a field near Filmore Road and 114th Avenue in Elbridge Township when his
firearm discharged striking Fuller in the head causing his death,
according to information from Oceana County Sheriffs Office in a release
Friday night. Previously, the OCSO stated Fuller was hunting with three
others when he was shot.
The arrest comes more than a year after the incident, Oceana County
Undersheriff Tim Priese said, because of the amount of time taken at the
lab for the firearms to be examined and analyzed. He said the suspect
also made some statements deputies had to evaluate.
Careless discharge of a firearm causing injury or death is a
misdemeanor charge with a maximum penalty of two years incarceration.
Roswell has been arraigned and bond set at $10,000 cash or surety.
No further information was available Friday night.
