An unthinkable tragedy struck Clermont County, OH, when on June 15th, 2023, 32-year-old Chad Doerman allegedly shot and killed his three sons execution-style. Clayton (7), Hunter (4), and Chase (3) were murdered in cold blood in broad daylight. Their mother was shot and injured during the assault as well. On Friday, June 23, Doerman pleaded not guilty to the 21 charges against him, which included aggravated murder, kidnapping, and felonious assault.
