Escape attempt brings new charges

HAMILTON - An Eaton man awaiting trial on a murder charge faces new charges for trying to escape.

Estel W. Buck has been indicted by a Butler County grand jury on aggravated robbery, felonious assault and escape charges.

Authorities say Deputy Sandy Brooks was placing Buck in her cruiser when Buck slipped his waist security chain over her head and tried to take her gun. A passerby subdued Buck.

Buck is already charged with aggravated murder for the March 8 fatal shooting of William Doolittle, Jr., 41, a vendor at Trader's World in Monroe. He was found shot in the head.
