Case Details:

According to a criminal complaint, State Trooper Moore was called to a Union Township residence on Tyler Drive at 11:46 p.m. on Tuesday, January 2, after a caller reported hearing loud yelling and things being slammed.

When Trooper Moore entered the residence, he saw various household items thrown around the kitchen, including chairs laying on their sides. He then spoke to the female victim, who reported she and her husband, Carson Clinger, had fought.

She said Clinger had choked her, threw her around several times, and told her he was going to shoot her before leaving the residence with friends, the complaint states.

There were two young children in the house, as well, and one of them told Trooper Moore that her father, Clinger, told her he was going to kill her mother (the victim) and that he had a plan to do it, the complaint continues.
