HAMILTON, Ohio — A 55-year-old Hamilton man was arrested Wednesday after police say he killed his daughter and another man in a Hamilton home.
Officers were called to the 2700 block of Hilda Avenue at about 2:24 a.m. after they say Alfred Rutherford shot his 29-year-old daughter, Lacey Rutherford, and an unidentified man found dead in the home’s bathroom.
Rutherford left the home after the shooting and was arrested just before 11 a.m. at Hamilton’s Joyce Park thanks to a tip, authorities said.
Authorities also recovered a vehicle at about 12:15 p.m. they believe Alfred used to drive away from his home.
Officers said Alfred and his daughter lived together, and several children were at the home during the children. Three of the children were Lacey’s, police said.
A woman who identified herself as Alfred’s wife called 911 at 2:23 a.m. and told dispatchers, “my husband killed my daughter.”
Alfred can be heard in the background of the 911 call stating, “Not taking me to jail, please let me go.” A child, identified by the caller as Lacey’s child, is also heard in the background crying.
The woman then says he is gone in a Ford Escort heading toward Nilles Road.
Alfred shot Lacey in the throat with a shotgun, the woman told dispatchers in the 911 call. She added they had been arguing.
