He is accused of shooting and killing Deputy Bill Brewer Feb. 2 during a 12-hour standoff, shooting and injuring Lt. Nick DeRose. He faces charges for firing shots at six other officers during the standoff.

Winn was live on Instagram during the incident at a Pierce Township apartment complex. Officials can be heard in videos naming the suspect and asking him to surrender.

Prosecutors said in court Winn faked his own suicide and was "lying in ambush” when Brewer and DeRose entered the apartment to render him aid.

Then, according to prosecutors, he fired several shots, killing Brewer and hurting DeRose.

Clermont County prosecutors have said they plan to seek the death penalty.

Winn is scheduled to appear in court to change his plea on Sept. 23 at 1 p.m.

The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office says they will not comment on the plea change until after the hearing.
