MI: Man arrested for 2007 hunting death in Oceana County

Man arrested for 2007 hunting death in Oceana County

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.
