Danielle Green, 42, was booked into the Switzerland County Jail Tuesday after pleading not guilty to murdering her ex-husband.Danielle Green, 42, was arrested and had an initial hearing Tuesday in the Ohio County Circuit Court.No bond was set for the woman accused of shooting her ex-husband, Raymond Green, 62.Prosecutor Aaron Negangard said she admitted to investigators that she killed her ex, but Green says it was in self-defense.She allegedly shot her husband ten times, after finding a loaded handgun on a nightstand next to her ex-husband sleeping in bed on the morning of Monday, May 26. Police say Raymond Green’s body was found in a metal box on the property on Hartford Pike in rural Ohio County.Investigators say the defendant told them she shot Raymond Green out of fear for her own life, but Negangard said the evidence is contrary to the facts.An investigation showed there were searches on the internet that included “Let’s Talk Terminal Ballistic Headshots” and “Headshot and 38 at Close Range” dating back to March, investigators said.According to the Dearborn County Register, Danielle Green’s attorney David Zerbe said other evidence should be considered. The defense team may pursue a battered spouse defense in the trial.The trial is set for next month.
The No. 1 USC men’s volleyball team will travel to No. 6 Long Beach State tonight in a rematch of the Trojans’ sweep over the 49ers earlier this season.The Trojans (9-1, 9-1) methodically swept Cal State Northridge on Wednesday, winning at the Matadome for the first time in nine matches. Against the Matadors, they hit .636 for the game, with senior opposite Murphy Troy, senior outside hitter Tri Bourne and junior outside hitter Tony Ciarelli all finishing with double-digit kills.Despite 16 errors at the service line, a defense intent on stopping the bread-and-butter middle attack and a flat atmosphere, the Trojans focused and executed.“I was really happy that we adapted,” said USC coach Bill Ferguson. “Since they took away the middle, we went outside and Murphy [Troy] and Tony [Ciarelli] really got better at the end of the match because of those opportunities.”Long Beach State (8-5, 7-3) boasts a considerably better record than Cal State Northridge, good for third in the conference.“They are going to be entirely better,” Ferguson said. “They had an off night last time. They also have a couple new guys that are stepping up.”Long Beach State outside hitter Brad Hemmerling recorded a career-high 16 kills in a sweep over Pepperdine on Wednesday. Prior to the Pepperdine match, he had only played in eight sets this season.The 49ers also feature one of the nation’s best middle blockers in Antwain Aguillard.“They have a big pair of middle blockers,” Troy said. “But we won’t need to do alter anything drastically.”Aguillard ranks third in the conference in blocks, one spot shy of Trojan senior middle blocker Austin Zahn.“He’s an offensive threat,” senior setter Riley McKibbin said. “But we’re not going to work around him or anything. We’ll stick to our game plan.”The Trojans have won the last five meetings against the 49ers.“The combination of the good volleyball and the good, knowledgeable crowd is really good for volleyball,” Ferguson said. “It’s gonna be a crankin’ place.”To add to an already raucous home atmosphere, Long Beach State will be honoring its 1991 championship team before Friday’s match. The Trojans happened to be the runners-up that year.“I feel like every team that plays us does this,” McKibbin said. “They always honor some team that beat USC like 20 years ago when they play us. All we’re focusing on is extending our streak and keeping our No. 1 spot.”First serve is at the Long Beach State Walter Pyramid at 7 p.m.
