Two Ohio postal workers slain by a disgruntled co-worker


Two Ohio postal workers were killed by a disgruntled co-worker Saturday morning.

DeShaune Stewart, 24, of Columbus, was charged with killing his supervisor at a post office in Dublin, Ohio, and then killing the Dublin postmaster outside the Columbus apartment complex where she lived.

According to Fox News, both killings were regarded as acts of “workplace violence,” police said, adding that they believed Stewart regarded the victims as being to blame for his impending dismissal from his job.

Stewart was naked and carrying a weapon at the time of both killings, which occurred about three hours and four miles apart, authorities said.

Stewart has been charged with aggravated murder for fatally shooting Herrera-Dempsey in Dublin and with murder for killing Ballard in Columbus, police said.

Patrol officers arrested Stewart shortly after Ballard was killed. They recovered a handgun after he tried to run away, police said.
