Share this

An Ohio man who allegedly killed his three sons in June is due back in court on Monday.

Suspect Chad Doerman is facing the death penalty for reportedly shooting his three children, ages 3, 4, and 7, in front of his wife and stepdaughter. WKEF reported that more than two dozen motions will be addressed during the latest hearing — including whether Doerman will wear restraints during his trial, which is scheduled for June.

Doerman allegedly planned to murder his three sons for months. He reportedly shot his 4-year-old son twice in the head in their Monroe Township home before shooting the 7-year-old as he tried to run away. The 7-year-old was wounded from behind when Doerman then shot him twice in the head from close range, according to prosecutors.

After allegedly killing his two sons, Doerman then snatched his 3-year-old son from his mother’s arms and shot him in the head. Doerman was also accused of shooting his children’s mother in the hand during the triple murder.

Doerman’s stepdaughter reportedly fled the home on foot and found a neighbor who called the police. Before police responded to the scene, the boys’ mother apparently told a 911 dispatcher her “babies had been shot.”

The three boys were found dead in a yard, while Doerman was found sitting next to the rifle on the porch.

Doerman was charged with aggravated murder, kidnapping, and felonious assault. Authorities have not disclosed a motive in June’s triple murder.

WKEF reported that the court will also decide if the jury can be asked to show mercy during Doerman’s upcoming trial.
