Prior to Father’s Day, a father of three was taken into custody for killing his three young sons, three, four, and seven years old.
Reports by the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office state that the man, Chad Doerman, allegedly lined up his children and shot them with a rifle. It was stated that the injured mother called 911 and law enforcement agents arrived at the scene to find Doerman calmly waiting for them on his doorstep.
Bodycam footage time-stamped Thursday, June 15, 2023, shows officers arriving at the scene to arrest the 34-year-old. After failing to comply when the police told him to stand up multiple times, he was shoved to the ground and handcuffed.
A second video shows Doerman in the courtroom where he was brought before a judge. It was mentioned that he admitted to killing his kids in an act that was premeditated and his bail was set at US$20 million.
Reports also stated that one of the boys had gotten away but was dragged back to the property and shot. The mother of the boys sustained a gunshot wound through the hand after she tried to protect her kids.
The preliminary hearing is set for June 26, 2023, at 1 PM.
