HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -
A man accused of murdering his 29-year-old daughter and another man inside his Hamilton home appeared in court Friday morning following his indictment for capital murder.
Common Pleas Judge Keith Spaeth ruled that Alfred I. Rutherford, 55, will remain in the Butler County Jail on a $2 million bond. Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser previously asked for Rutherford to be held without bond.
Officers found his 29-year-old daughter, Lacey Rutherford, and 41-year-old Steve Watkins of Wilmington gunned down just after 2:30 a.m. June 18.
Rutherford was indicted Wednesday by a Butler County grand jury on charges of aggravated murder for Watkins' death, murder and having weapons under disability.
He could face the death penalty if he's convicted.
Police said there were multiple people gathered at the home on Hilda Avenue, including children, when an argument broke out that led to gunfire.
Rutherford's wife called 911 and said that he shot their daughter with a shotgun and then left the house. She told the operator that she didn't know where he was going.
During the call, Lacey's son is heard crying in the background.
Rutherford was taken into custody about eight hours later at Joyce Park in Hamilton.
FOX19 Investigates found that Rutherford has a lengthy record with many run-ins with the law. The charges he's faced include kidnapping, robbery and discharging firearms in the city. He's also had several DUI and drug arrests.
