Trial delayed for man accused of shooting wife, deputy

Prosecutor drops charges, plans to refile

Guilfoyle was scheduled to appear in this courtroom Monday

(BROOKVILLE, Ind.) –  The trial of a Brookville man accused of shooting his wife before exchanging gunfire with a Franklin County deputy was scheduled to begin Monday.

Gregory Guilfoyle was charged with attempted murder stemming from the incidents that took place during blizzard-like conditions on the morning of December 23, 2022. 

However, Franklin County Prosecutor Chris Heurkamp has dismissed all of the charges just days before the trial.

Heurkamp told WLWT that the dismissal is due to new evidence recently being submitted.

He also confirmed that charges will be refiled once the evidence is reviewed.

Guilfoyle allegedly shot his wife at their home, before leaving the house with her daughter and walking along State Road 1. 

A Franklin County deputy came upon Guilfoyle and the child when Guilfoyle pulled out a handgun and fired at the officer, according to police. 

The deputy was struck and suffered non-life threatening injuries. 

Guilfoyle was also shot and is now wheel-chair bound, according to court documents. 

His wife, Hannah Lynch, spent months in a Cincinnati hospital and is in the process of recovering. 

His attorney recently told the Cincinnati Enquirer that they plan to show the jury Guilfoyle is not guilty, in part, by reason of insanity.

The sheriff's office supports Heurkamp's reasoning for dismissing these charges now, according to WLWT.
