Shooting case will go to trial


PERRY — The shooting case against Blackwell police lieutenant John Mitchell will go to trial.
On Wednesday, a judge in Perry in Noble County ruled there was enough probable cause evidence to proceed with a trial. Mitchell is charged with second degree murder or first degree manslaughter in the shooting death of Michael Ann Godsey, 34, during a pursuit. Mitchell was indicted by a grand jury last November because he engaged in “imminently dangerous conduct” when he shot Godsey.
