Police have arrested the home owner in the arson fire that killed Hamilton firefighter Patrick Wolterman a year ago this month.
Lester Parker, 66, is facing felony murder and aggravated arson charges, according to Hamilton police, who announced an indictment Monday afternoon. Wolterman fell through the first floor of Parker's home while fighting a blaze on Dec. 28, 2015.
Hamilton Police Chief Craig Bucheit said he is "confident" this will not be the only arrest in the case. Investigators have "amassed an overwhelming amount of evidence," Bucheit said. Officials declined to discuss the evidence or motive, saying the investigation is ongoing. He said Parker has cooperated with investigators.
