A Marshall County Grand Jury will hear a case for second degree manslaughter against a suspect accused of choking a man to death while waiting for police to arrive.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office says Howard Baier and Jimmy Filbeck were fighting on July 18th when Filbeck attempted to restrain Baier until deputies arrived.
Baier was dead when police arrived and an autopsy revealed he died from being choked and suffocated. Those findings were consistent with statements given by Filbeck at the scene. The Marshall County Grand Jury will decide on whether to charge Filbeck with manslaughter on September 13th.
