Hamilton father accused of murdering daughter, man appears in court
HAMILTON, Ohio (WKRC) -- A Hamilton man accused of killing two people while children attended a slumber party, is locked up on two million dollars bond.
Alfred Rutherford was arraigned on two counts of murder Thursday for the murders of his daughter Lacey Rutherford and a man named Steve Watkins early Wednesday morning.
Lacey's three children and some of their friends witnessed the shooting. No one else was hurt. Police arrested Rutherford about nine hours later at Joyce Park, after getting a tip.
Steve Watkins' relationship to the Rutherfords isn't clear. Lacey Rutherford was charged earlier this week with possession of drug paraphernalia. It's not clear whether that had anything to do with the shootings.
