A Morgan county grand jury has declined to indict a man who had been charged with murder in the shooting death of his former wife’s son. Prosecutors said 39-year-old Robert Ward was accused of shooting 33-year-old David Winchell in the abdomen during a fight at Ward’s home in December. Ward says he acted in self-defense after Winchell threatened him with a rifle. An autopsy showed Winchell died from a single gunshot wound that damaged several organs. Morgan county prosecutor Rick Welch says authorities now consider the case closed.
