North College Hill woman attacked by husband dies

NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) - A North College Hill woman who was allegedly attacked by her husband on Oct. 8 has passed away.

The Hamilton County Coroner's office confirmed to FOX19 NOW on Sunday that Monica Jeter died over the weekend.  The specific day or the cause of death was not confirmed.

Police say Monica was attacked by her husband, 36-year-old Andre Jeter, in the 1400 block of Foxwood Drive just before 4:30 a.m. on Oct. 8.

Jeter was charged with attempted aggravated murder after being arrested by police.

Responding officers found Monica semi-unconscious in a pool of blood, according to North College Hill Police Chief Gary Foust. She had been transported to the hospital with possible life-threatening injuries and immediately went into surgery.

According to Hamilton County dispatchers, the couple's children found Monica after she was attacked and it was their 12-year-old child who made the 911 call.

"My dad, he just hit my mom and she's bleeding a lot and he jumped on her and everything and now he's gone he just left, ran," the boy, 12, told the dispatcher.

His siblings, ages 10, 11 and 9, also were home at the time of the attack. They have been placed with family members and child case workers with Hamilton County Job and Family Services have been notified.

According to court records, Jeter was arrested in January on a domestic violence charge. Jeter put his wife in a choke hold and threw her to the ground, the records state.

Monica filed a restraining order against Jeter one day after the incident. One month later, Jeter requested to eliminate the order so he could see his children. That request was granted, according to court documents.
