Antonio Heath: West Chester man stabbed to death in Hamilton

HAMILTON, Ohio -- Police believe a fatal stabbing in Hamilton may have been a case of self-defense.

Investigators think Antonio Heath, of West Chester, may have been killed during a home invasion. Heath did not live in the residence in the 300 block of Hampshire Drive where his body was found Thursday morning, according to police.

The homicide took place about 4:30 a.m., police said.

Investigators said officers found Heath when they responded to a call about a possible fight.

"To hear someone stabbed to death, I mean, it just doesn't make sense," neighbor Demetrius Carnes told WCPO reporter Bryce Anslinger. "I'm from Cincinnati so it's not surprising, but it's still surprising, you know what I mean? Just senseless violence all the time."
