Highway Shooter Charged

Highway shootings suspect charged with murder, other counts

The suspect in the Columbus highway shootings case has been charged with a woman's death and numerous other assaults. A Franklin County grand jury indicted Charles A- McCoy Junior this afternoon on charges including aggravated murder, murder, attempted murder and vandalism. McCoy could face the death penalty if convicted. McCoy had been charged in just one of the 24 shootings. He was charged today in 12 separate shootings. The gunfire began in May around a southern stretch of Columbus' outerbelt. Shootings eventually spread to two other highways. Sixty-two-year-old Gail Knisley of Washington Court House died November 25th after being struck while riding in a friend's car. Twenty-eight-year-old McCoy was arrested March 17th in Las Vegas, two days after investigators released his photo and a description of his car.
