Police make arrest in 2012 South Fairmount homicide case

CINCINNATI – Police arrested Dionta Thompson and charged him with murder in the 2012 shooting death of South Fairmount resident Aaron Roseberry.

Thompson is accused of entering Roseberry’s in the 2200 block of Schoedinger Avenue on Nov. 9 with another suspect, Alisha Turner.

The two were allegedly attempting to rob Roseberry, when Roseberry’s dog enter the room.  The suspects shot the dog, according to Michael Roseberry, Aaron’s father.

“When they shot his dog is when he got up,” Michael Roseberry said. “If he had just stayed down he would still be alive, but when they shot his baby, you know he got up and boom, they shot him.”

Turner was arrested a few days after the incident.

An open warrant for Thompson was issued in early August.

The Cincinnati Police Fugitive Apprehension Squad arrested Thomas on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

“I’d like to see everyone involved behind bars. You know, I don’t want to see them dead, but I’d like to see them all suffer, like I’ve been suffering,” Michael Roseberry said after Thompson’s arrest warrant was issued.
