Murder Suspect Indicted
On Wednesday, May 17, 2023, the Richland County Grand Jury returned an indictment on William Carter for Murder (2 counts), Felonious Assault, Having Weapons Under Disability, and Tampering with Evidence. This is a result of the recent homicide at 20 Dunbilt Court on April 30, 2023.
Major crimes detective lead Detective Larry Schacherer and the entire bureau did an excellent job following up on both self-generated and public leads to secure this indictment.
Mr. Carter is currently incarcerated in the Summit County jail on unrelated charges and will answer to this indictment when he is returned to Richland County.
We are hopeful that this arrest will not only allow the victim’s family some relief but also, begin to help alleviate community fears as to the recent rash of gun-related incidents. We ask that you respect the victim’s family’s privacy at this time.
Major crimes detectives are diligently continuing to follow up on the remaining homicides. If anyone has any further information please call the Mansfield Police Tip Line at 419-522-7463
