Court records show a man accused of fatally shooting a sheriff's deputy and wounding another deputy during a 12-hour standoff in Ohio has been charged with aggravated murder.

Clermont County Municipal Court records show 23-year-old Wade Edward Winn has also been charged with attempted aggravated murder in the shootings in Pierce Township, east of Cincinnati. Authorities say Detective Bill Brewer died from his wounds. The other deputy was treated and released.

Court records don't show an attorney for Winn.
