Ohio Woman Has All Charges Against Her Dropped In Alleged Self-Defense Shooting


CINCINNATI, OHIO — LaQuieta Reese, who was charged in connection with the fatal shooting of 38-year-old Gregory Jeffries, has been acquitted of all counts, according to reports.

The 36-year-old woman was indicted in March of last year on charges of murder and felonious assault in relation to the shooting that took place in the previous month.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the shooting was the result of an argument between Reese and Jeffries, and Jeffries was reportedly shot twice.

The charges were based on “eyewitness and other witness statements, statements of the arrested, physical evidence on the scene and other evidence recovered,” according to the Cincinnati Police Department’s criminal complaint.

Reese’s lawyers, Stephen Wenke and Perry Ancona, said the court found Reese acted in self defense, however but did not go into specifics. The shooting happened at Forest Ridge Townhomes in Mount Airy and Wenke described the situation as “just a tragic situation.”

This decision is a reminder of the complex nature of criminal cases and the importance of due process in ensuring that justice is served.
