The 66 year old homeowner of the house where a young Hamilton (Ohio, in the greater Cincinnati area) Firefighter died in the Line of Duty last December was charged today with arson and murder.
In March, Patrick Wolterman’s death was officially ruled a homicide by Butler County Coroner Lisa Mannix, who cited smoke inhalation as the primary cause of death.
Firefighter Wolterman was a 2005 graduate of Roger Bacon High School in Cincinnati. He joined the Hamilton Fire Department in April 2015 after serving with the Fairfield and Colerain Township departments. He and his wife Bre had been married for seven months. RIP.
