COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus police say no charges will be filed against a man they say acted in self-defense when he fatally stabbed another man on the Northeast side earlier this week.

Detectives say Jack Hairston, 53, stabbed William Justis during an argument inside an apartment on E. Weber Road early Tuesday morning.

Investigators say they are forwarding the case to the county prosecutor’s office for review.

Justi, 44, was stabbed in the upper chest, and police said Hairston waited at the scene afterward and was taken into custody.
