Three more suspects in a Dec. 30 Miamisburg homicide were indicted Thursday, two of them for murder, including one man police said became violent and caused minor injuries to at least one officer.
Two of the three men are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
Jason B. Churchill, Dante K. English and Daniel Matthew Simone join Chaz Gillilan as those facing charges in the late-night home invasion slaying of Miamisburg High School senior Noah Kinser, Montgomery County court records show.
Churchill and Simone are to be in court for initial appearances.
Kinser, 18, was fatally shot in a Miamisburg apartment on North First Street, about a block from the police department, in the city’s first homicide since 2011. A 14-year-old was also injured in the shooting but recovered, police said.
Gillilan, of Coshocton County, was indicted in May by a Montgomery County grand jury on six counts of murder; four counts each of aggravated robbery and felonious assault; two counts each of aggravated burglary and having weapons while under disability; and one count each of tampering with evidence, and possession of criminal tools, according to court records.
He has pleaded not guilty and is being held on a $1 million bond, court records show.
Simone became combative with arresting officers shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday and attempted to kick out a cruiser window, Miamisburg Police Chief John Sedlak said. The suspect’s actions at the police department prompted a call for additional assistance, and at least one officer sustained minor injuries, police said.
“One of the individuals was brought here for an interview, and he was uncooperative and we were preparing to transport him down to the Montgomery County Jail,” Sedlak said.
“He was resistant and he was presenting a danger to officers, so we had to control that situation prior to transport” to the county jail, Sedlak said. “He was being pretty violent in (the cruiser) to the extent that he could.”
Court records show:
•Simone, 28, of Englewood, was indicted on 19 charges, including murder, felonious assault, aggravated robbery and other counts. He is in the Montgomery County Jail, but no court date had been filed as of Thursday afternoon.
•Churchill, 32, of Moraine, faces 18 charges including murder, aggravated robbery and felonious assault in connection to Kinser’s death. He was already in the county jail on charges connected to another case. His next court date is July 30.
•English, 30, of Cincinnati, was indicted on arson, tampering with evidence, possession of criminal tools and insurance fraud in connection to the case. He was arrested about 8:30 a.m. and was in the Hamilton County Jail Thursday. No court date had been filed as of Thursday afternoon.
Simone has felony convictions in Montgomery County dating back more than 10 years. Those cases included guilty findings on receiving stolen property and gross sexual imposition, records show.
In 2013, he was convicted of grand theft, aggravated robbery and kidnapping, according to court records.
In January, Churchill was indicted on several felonies in connection with an assault on Thunderbird Lane in West Carrollton.
An arrest warrant for Churchill was also issued after an affidavit stated he was one of three masked individuals breaking into a Dayton apartment, where he was toting a semi-automatic handgun, court records show.
Similarities between the Jan. 7 robbery assault on Thunderbird Lane and the Kinser killing prompted detectives to check for possible connections, Miamisburg police Sgt. Jeff Muncy has said.
Court records indicate Gillilan became a suspect through comments he made and his Ohio criminal history. After a 2012 conviction, Gillilan was ordered to submit to DNA registration, court records show.
Court records show a mixed DNA profile identified 9 mm casings found at the scene of the shooting of Kinser was consistent with DNA collected from Gillilan, whose has history of felony convictions and prison sentences.
Ballistics confirmed that the bullet that killed Kinser was in a 9 mm round, according to local court records.
Gillilan “made incriminating admissions and statements to multiple subjects regarding his involvement in this homicide,” those same records show.
