The Chautauqua County District Attorney has refiled charges against a man who shot his neighbor while illegally hunting at night.
Thomas Jadlowski of Sherman, New York reportedly admitted to police that he fired a single gunshot at what he thought was a deer in late November. That bullet hit and killed 43-year-old Rosemary Billquist, who was walking her dogs.
Jadlowski is charged with second-degree manslaughter and with violating New York hunting laws by firing after sunset. A procedural error forced the court to drop the original manslaughter charge which has now been refiled by District Attorney Patrick Swanson.
Pre-trial motions will be heard in May.
