Cambria County District Attorney Greg Neugebauer charged John Oblinsky with criminal homicide and aggravated assault, according to WJAC 6. Oblinsky is Fisher's grandfather. 

“There is never a reason that domestic disputes should turn physical or involve firearms," Neugebauer said.

Oblinsky is being held in Cambria County prison and his bail was denied. Oblinsky’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 11, according to court documents obtained by WJAC 6.
