38-year-old Quintel Estelle will now be transferred over to common pleas court after probable cause was determined in his hearing this morning. A Lima Police detective testified to the events that occurred on May 4 that ended in the death of 63-year-old Donald Smith. Smith's granddaughter witnessed the whole event and testified as well. She said Smith was there to confront Estelle who may have harmed Smith's son. She said Smith punched Estelle in the face before separating. Then Estelle grabbed a gun from inside his house and fired one shot toward Smith.
