Judge: Fambro acted in self-defense

For the second time, Frenchie Fambro has been cleared of any wrongdoing in connection with the July 21, 2011 shooting death of Christoper Martin Stepanski, 26. Stepanski was shot and killed in the parking lot of JR. Food Mart on College Drive in Barnesville. Judge Bill Fears signed an order November noting his finding that Fambro shot Stepanski in self defense. Testimony and forensics indicated Stepanski was in – or very near – Fambro’s car when Fambo fired, striking Stepanski twice. Judge Fears’ order grants Fambro immunity from prosecution in the case. Fambro, 49, had originally been charged with murder but chief magistrate William Thomas dropped that charge at a hearing on September 8, 2011. Fambro was later indicted on one count of involuntary manslaughter – the charge which Judge Fears has effectively dismissed. Fambro has long been free on bond.
