Attempted homicide charge withdrawn in companion case

A Corry man charged with attempted homicide last month is having those charges withdrawn and will be a free man as a result of further investigation into the incident.

Tab D. Hunter, 36, 243 Shawnee Ave., was initially charged with criminal attempt — criminal homicide, aggravated assault, strangulation, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person from the June 27 incident.

Warren County District Attorney Rob Greene said he filed the motion to withdraw on Wednesday afternoon and said Hunter “should be released today.”

“Fortunately there was a video camera, a private security camera, where this occurred,” Greene said. “Some peeps weren’t telling the truth.”

That isn’t to say that Hunter is getting off scot-free. “He is still going to be facing criminal charges,” Greene said, including simple assault, harassment and criminal mischief.

But those charges, Greene said, shouldn’t require bail.

“(I) wanted to act as quickly as possible to get him out of jail,” he added. “Thank goodness for video.”

Hunter was alleged to have fired multiple rounds in the direction of Daniel Heidler, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

According to state police, Heidler, who is on the run, provided false information in the case against Hunter.
