ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Sparrowbush man accused of shooting a fugitive rape suspect outside his home is indicted on a number of charges.
Now, David Carlson is out on bail and fighting to clear his name.
Carlson is charged with second degree murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and criminal possession of a weapon.
Prosecutors say Carlson shot unarmed Norris Acosta-Sanchez, with a 12-gauge shotgun in the head on October 11 of this year.
Police had been searching for Acosta-Sanchez. They say when Carlson tried to detain Acosta-Sanchez until authorities could arrive, he shot and killed him.
Carlson will be arraigned next week.
"Very concerned I'm looking at some serious charges. It's not just about me; it's about my sons and my wife. I have to be here to be a father not just financially but emotionally," said Carlson.
If convicted, Carlson faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
