The murders of Jacob Feichtner, Katherine Rosby, and Bruce Anderson by Terrance Hough Jr. is featured in the latest episode of Fear Thy Neighbor on Investigation Discovery.

At around 11 pm on July 4, 2007, Feichtner, 24, and a few of his friends went to his father’s house on Sky Lane Drive in Cleveland, Ohio, where they spent several hours setting off fireworks.

Shortly after midnight, Hough—a former firefighter who lived next door to Feichtner—became so angry about the noise Feichtner and his friends were making that he walked over there with a .40 caliber Beretta semi-automatic handgun to confront them.

Feichtner was standing in the driveway when Hough told him that he wasn’t going to be making any more noises.

When Feichtner asked what he was going to do about it, Hough shot him once in the chest, causing him to fall. As he lay injured on the ground, Hough shot him two more times in the chest.

Hough continued shooting, striking four of Feichtner’s friends: Katherine Rosby, Bruce Anderson, Katherine Nicholas, and Donald Walsh.

Feichtner, Rosby, and Anderson were killed, but Nicholas and Walsh survived.

An off-duty police officer, Joseph Bovenzi, was in the area at the time of the shooting and opted to go over there and check it out.

When he arrived at the scene, residents directed him to Hough’s home where Bovenzi found him sitting at the dinner table.

Hough admitted to shooting his neighbor and his friends. He then asked if they’d died before telling the officer that he’d snapped.

He was arrested and booked into the county jail on charges of aggravated murder and two counts of attempted murder.

Following a 30-day trial in 2008, a jury deliberated for seven hours before returning with a guilty verdict.

Hough was sentenced to life in prison.

He later appealed his murder conviction, claiming that there were errors during his trial, but it was denied in 2010.

Having gone thru this same situation many times, I can understand Hough’s feelings. And sometimes the cops won’t do anything.

Really- It’s true, they were way to noisy at times and I’m sure they didn’t deserve that, especially with little kids— but that didn’t give him any right to go up and shot 3 teenagers dead and injure a cop because he can’t stand the noise.

1. r, it was a holiday In Cleveland so everybody was celebrating in the neighborhood. If the next door neighbors had to quit down, so did everyone else in the area.

2. The cop across the street gave him a suggestion to take his family out of town to get away from the noise while the kids are lighting the fireworks, but fireman didn’t do anything.

3. He and his wife seemed to be the only neighbors annoyed by his next door neighbors

Did the young man have his own home? I’m not sure from reading this article. If he did, Feichtner should have shot off fireworks at his own home, instead of going to his dad’s. He’d already been confronted by his dad’s neighbor over the noise he and his friends had made on past occasions. And doesn’t Cleveland have laws about being noisy so late?? If so, Hough should have called the cops on them.

Watching the program on ID. That guy really should have controlled his sons better! Now one is dead, and it’s partially his own fault.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
