Video: Hunter Who was Charged with Homicide After Mistaking Woman for Deer has Case Dismissed Due to Technicality
OutdoorHub Reporters 02.23.18
The case in which a New York hunter was charged with shooting and killing a woman after mistaking her for a deer has been dismissed.
You may recall the case from a previous OutdoorHub article, in which Thomas Jadlowski, 34, mistook Rosemary Billquist for a deer while she was walking her dogs, and shot her in a field behind her home. Jadlowski was originally charged with second-degree manslaughter, and hunting after shooting hours.
In the latest development of the case, WKBW reports Chautauqua County Judge David Foley granted an appeal by the defense to dismiss the charges because the grand jury was never instructed on a lesser charge of criminally negligent homicide.
As you can see in the video below, Jamie Billquist, husband of Rosemary Billquist, isn’t fazed by the ruling and ultimately believes Jadlowski will be brought to justice.
