Man accused of threatening is cleared

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A Bridgetown man was cleared Wednesday of charges that he threatened to kill a former girlfriend.

        Gary E. Boenitsch, 49, was accused two weeks ago of threatening the woman after she testified against him in a domestic violence case.

        In Common Pleas Court on Wednesday, Mr. Boenitsch's at torney, Tim Smith, argued that his client was the one who was threatened. He said Mr. Boenitsch would not have called the woman at all if she had not called him first.

        Prosecutors had said Mr. Boenitsch threatened the woman after she testified against him at a grand jury hearing.

        Judge Richard Niehaus dismissed the charges.
