Federal Murder Complaint Filed Against Postal Worker

By Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A federal criminal complaint Wednesday stated that a disgruntled Ohio postal worker murdered two U.S. government employees for performing their official duties.

The complaint signed by a U.S. postal inspector was filed in U.S. district court in Columbus. Deshaune Stewart, 24, was arrested Saturday, accused of fatally shooting his supervisor at a post office in suburban Columbus and then killing a postmaster outside her apartment.

Authorities say Stewart was naked during both attacks.

U.S. Attorney’s spokeswoman Jennifer Thornton said Stewart remained in state custody. A Franklin County court record earlier indicated a mental evaluation was ordered for Stewart, charged with aggravated murder in the Ohio court.

Thornton said federal and local authorities would work together to determine the appropriate venue for prosecution.

No attorney was listed for Stewart.
