CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati serial killer Anthony Kirkland murdered his wife. Now widower Anthony Davis faces charges for allegedly driving his car into a group of people who he says were harassing him about it.

His lawyer says Davis, who is charged with felonious assault, is being harassed now that the Kirkland case is back in the news.

Davis told investigators that he was tired of being targeted by the people he went after with his car.

It was on July 19 when police say Davis confessed to driving up onto the curb and striking at least one person who was on foot.

It was 2006 when Kirkland killed Davis’ wife, who was then a mere 25-year-old. Kimya Rolison had two kids and was talking about moving back to California.

Rolison disappeared from home shortly after she left a drug rehab program. Her family assumed she ran away, possibly to use drugs.

Her body wasn’t found until two years later badly burned and stabbed.

Davis is due back in court on Aug. 30
