Prosecutor wants no bond for accused cop killer

WESTERVILLE, Ohio (WTVN) -- The man accused of killing two Westerville police officers is scheduled to face a judge on Tuesday.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says he will oppose any talk of bond or bail for Quentin Smith, facing aggravated murder charges in the deaths of Officers Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering.

Police say Smith opened fire on the officers when they responded to a 911 hang-up call at his home earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Westerville Police Chief Joe Morbitzer hopes to use deaths of the officers as a learning experience.

Morbitzer says an internal investigation is underway, aimed at finding out whether the officers were properly equipped and followed their training as they responded to the scene.

Morbitzer adds that his officers have also learned how to cope with grief.
