Hatfied was accused of robbing, shooting and killing David B. Robinson, 41 at Robinson’s home on Elkins Avenue in Trotwood March 28.

A vehicle and two men were described as leaving the scene by witnesses. A vehicle with the same description was later spotted by Miamisburg Police. The vehicle fled when an officer activated their cruiser lights and attempted to stop them.

The car, driven by William Denny with Hatfield in the passenger seat, led police on a multiple county high speed chase that ended when the car crashed into a median near Paul Brown Stadium.

During the pursuit, Hatfield was seen throwing evidence out of the window, including the disassembled murder weapon.

Hatfield was found guilty of the charges after a jury deliberated for about six hours over the past two days after four days of testimony.
