Jamie Utron, 44, was murdered at the prime of his life by thugs trying to save the life of a child he accidentally barely hit with his car.
Witness of the incident says that there was a man on the street where Utron was driving yelling at passing cars, making aggressive movements trying to get the attention of the drivers.
Utron was distracted for a moment when a child ran out on the street in front of his car and was struck. Shocked and chocking on his own tears Utron realized what has happened and stopped instantly intending to stay and help the boy. That was his biggest mistake.
Upon seeing his child on the ground, one of the thugs viciously attacked Utron while he was still in the car despite his apologetic cries. The man attacking Utron eventually stopped and went to tend to the child when another man approached Utron and started to beat him too.
According to the eyewitness, you could hear Urton screaming over and over again “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”
“He didn’t mean to do it, he was bawling his eyes out, saying he was sorry, begging for mercy, basically.”
The man now attacking Utron, pulled him out of the car while Utron was still begging for mercy. Once outside the car, Utron was shot over and over again even after his body went limp. “After his arms just dropped and there was no life left in him anymore, they shot him again.” said the witness.
The two men Denote Baber and Jamall Killings – the father of the child, are facing murder charges. Killings is pleading not guilty saying that he doesn’t know what happened while he was tending to his son, but it is very likely that he was the person heard on the 911 call telling his son that he killed the man that hit him.
Freedom Daily reports:
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters told WCPO News that,
“We have a minor traffic accident, and the guy gets pulled out of his car, beaten senseless, and another guy comes out of his house and executes him,” Deters said.
Deters also said the collision “was clearly not the driver’s fault.” He said the boy had jumped out from behind two cars.
“He slams on the breaks, barely hits the kid,” Deters said.
Yesterday Killings denied having any part in the murder but prosecutors aren’t buying it. It was just determined that Killings was the person heard on the 911 call telling his son that he killed the man who hit him, according to Deters.
