FIRST REPORT: Weekend assault in Hamilton turns deadly
Combs, 41, of Hastings Avenue, was found unresponsive at a home on Hampshire Court and was pronounced dead at an area hospital, according to a police report.
“It was an assault that turned deadly,” said Hamilton police Sgt. Brian Robinson.
Today, Mills waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Hamilton Municipal Court and the case was automatically sent to a Butler County grand jury for consideration.
Defense attorney David Washington told the Journal-News he is working on a resolution to the case, possibly before the grand jury hears it.
