(UPDATED AT 5:24 P.M.) The man accused of shooting to death a Sandusky police officer earlier this month has been released from the hospital and placed in jail.

Kevin D. Randleman, 50, was released from the University of Toledo Medical Center on Tuesday and transported to the Erie County jail by sheriff's deputies.

He will be arraigned Thursday morning at Erie County Common Pleas Court.

On March 19, Randleman, of Sandusky, used a Colt "Detective's Special" .38-caliber revolver to shoot to death Sandusky police Officer Andy Dunn after a traffic stop on Tyler Street, investigators said.

Dunn, 30, was patrolling near Tyler Street and Hayes Avenue at 2:59 a.m. Saturday when he spotted Kevin D. Randleman, 50, riding his bike in the street with no lights — a violation of Ohio law.

Dunn tried to talk to Randleman, who evaded the officer, investigators said.

Dunn turned his cruiser around and activated his overhead lights, pulling Randleman over. As Dunn exited the cruiser, Randleman allegedly started firing.

According to an autopsy, Randleman hit Dunn with five bullets, four of which tore through both lungs and other vital organs.

After Dunn suffered critical injuries, the officer returned fire from his .40-caliber service pistol and hit Randleman twice in the arm, authorities said.

Emergency room doctors stabilized Randleman, who was then flown by helicopter to the University of Toledo Medical Center for more treatment.

Since the incident, Randleman has been under guard at the hospital.

Randleman faces charges of aggravated murder, having a weapon under disability and carrying a concealed weapon.

If found guilty, Randleman could face the death penalty.

Because Randleman faces capital murder charges, two attorneys certified to represent indigent defendants in capital cases will be appointed to defend him, prosecutors said.

Kevin Randleman is mentally challenged, he has documentation proving so. It' s unconstitutional to execute a mentally challenged person in the state of Ohio, he also can't go to prison, he will be sent to a mental ward if he' s  convicted.  So everybody can stop with the death penalty talk. Do your research before you talk.  Why you think the prosecuter didn't refile their charges against him the first time?  As far as the register stating he' s been to prison twice, he' s never been to prison, he's been to the mental ward multiple time' s.  So the Register needs to report the fact' s before they report anything.

really allmoneyin???

randleman knew what he was doing! what kind of "mentally challenged" would ride a bike at the butt crack of dawn? Plus, why would a "mentally challenged" person would have a illegal gun on him, that he also wasn't allowed to have any guns on him, which was also not registerd...... oh ya, he's really mentally challenged, this sick person is going to die! if he some out does get out of this (which he won't) he's going to be a dead man walking!

Your the one that has mental problems if you don't think that this P.O.S. isn't going to get the death penalty. Why do you think they released him from the hospital with the IV still in his arm, so it would be so easy to administer the lethal injection when he is put to death!!!

For everybody who keep on talking about the youtube video posted, if you knew who  Kackle was, you would know that ain't his girlfriend.

 

Louie

re allmoneyin I think thats a load of crap and he deserves the death penalty just because hes mentally challenged  supposly if he knows the difference between right and wrong he knew better than to do this.Isnt that what he gave officer Dunn The Death Penalty.I get so tired of people getting out of things because of excuses tthat no one else can get away with.Death Penalty for this waste of space.

@allmoneyin  Your buddy Kackle got a 67 on his IQ test, anything under 70 is considered mental retardation. You are correct on that part. However there is more to the evaluation than that, first there is a 10 for plus/minus, meaning the number used for execution is 60, which your boy passes!!

So basically a 67 score is a FORREST GUMP, which means, he knows right from wrong, he can hold a job, for example a Walmart greeter, or dishwasher. He can get a drivers license or motorcycle endorsement. He knows how to work the system, by not working, filing for welfare, applying for social security, he remembers which days his check comes in the mail. He can post a facebook page. He is resourceful, for example he found a gun when it was illegal for him to have one and came up with the money to purchase one. He can go into Big O's and know how to make change and buy a drink. He can live and function in everyday life, without the help of a guardian, or care taker.

There are many factors and tests taken into account, it is not just the number 67.

In Texas 6 people have been put to death for their crimes and all 6 scored less than 70.

Sorry, but don't get your hopes up.

RE: dick tracey

This ain' t  Texas, it's a big difference.

Dick Tracey

@allmoneyin  Again you are wrong. Bailey tried that in his first trial and it did NOT fly!

Bailey also questioned Randleman's mental capacity, citing the testimony of a psychologist who described him as borderline to mildly mentally retarded.

Sorry, but that is just a dumb excuse for crime, as dumb as the Twinkie defense, it did not work last time and it will not work this time.

allmoneyin

RE: Dick Tracey  Not making excuses, I say he' s innocent, self defense.  Tell the police to release the video and stop trying to cover this up, like they did at lion's park.

here in ohio

Hay ALLMONEYIN.... you no this guy ? Is he your buddy ? so you say he has been in the mental ward multiple time' s? really and they let him back out ? WOW so now he will go back for what 2 maybe 3 years and then back on the streets again to kill ?? He is NOT mentally challenged he is a scum bag that is a COP KILLER and needs to pay the price ! mentally challenged YEAH RIGHT !!!!!

gilamonster

ALLMONEYIN, His mental disabilities did not hamper his ability to obtain a gun, put bullets in gun, conceal gun, ride a bike, pull trigger while aiming at officer, nor did it hamper his other past exploits. So cry my a river, tired of hearing this crap. I beez suhh stoopid, iuhz dint knowzah whatsa iuhhs waz dooin.

If everybody paid more attention to what was going on, you would know they just signed a bill a few day' s  ago to get rid of the death penalty in Ohio.  So what death penalty are ya' ll referring too.  The one that' s not gonna exist by the end of the year.

If you can't complete a proper sentence or have normal grammer, you need to stop trying to stick up for this loser. He's just as much of a lost cause to society as you are. On the real!

Also, there is no need to use an apostrophe just because a word ends in the letter "s"...

allmoneyin:

A bill was introduced last week  to abolish the death penalty in Ohio. It has not been voted on yet.
