Chester, Vermont - November 26, 2008
Murder charges have been dropped in a fatal shooting in Windsor County.
Kyle Bolaski, 24, of Springfield, was charged with second-degree murder, for killing Vincent Tamburello, 32, of Springfield, in August during a fight at a park in Chester. Bolaski claims Tamburello was chasing him with an ax, so he shot him twice.
A grand jury agreed the shooting was self-defense.
Bolaski will face aggravated assault charges for allegedly hitting Tamburello with the gun after the shooting.
How in the hell can you be charged with aggravated assault on someone and cleared of shooting them?
