Man accused of shooting deputy faces judge Wednesday

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - The suspect accused of shooting a Warren County deputy and his own father is expected to face a judge Wednesday.

A grand jury filed a 10-count indictment against Mohammad Laghaoui. The 19-year-old could face up to 68 years in prison.

He is scheduled for a 10:30 a.m. arraignment at the county courthouse after he was indicted Tuesday on several charges including attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder, felonious assault, improperly discharging a firearm, and tampering with evidence.

Warren County sheriff's officials have said Laghaoui shot and wounded Deputy Katie Barnes after she responded to an apartment for a domestic disturbance call in June.

Prosecutors say the fight started over hummus.

Laghaoui is accused of not only shooting Deputy Barnes but also his own father.

The deputy and Laghaoui's father are doing OK.

Authorities are still searching for the AK-47 assault rifle Laghaoui used to shoot them.
