Arizona Central reports prosecutors have refiled the second degree murder charges against Harold Fish who is accused of shooting an unarmed hiker in a dog confrontation at a Coconino County trailhead near Payson this spring.
The judge recently threw out a grand jury indictment saying more evidence should have been presented. In this case the prosecutor says he will present the case directly to the judge.
Fish shot Grant Kuenzli 3x after firing two warning shots into the ground after he was charged by three unleashed dogs. Fish says Kuenzli was running toward him threatening to kill him. The original prosecutor had refused to prosecute saying it was self-defense. After a public outcry, the second degree murder charge was filed.
