Aurora -- Bond has been set at $1 million for the Chatham Estates man arrested in connection with the Nov. 2 shooting of his wife. Charles Rome Jr., 28, of Chelmsford Drive, was charged with aggravated attempted murder. He was arrested Nov. 3 at 8:11 a.m., one day after police say he allegedly shot his estranged wife in the shoulder with a shotgun. She has since been released from the hospital and is recuperating, according to Police Chief Seth Riewaldt. Rome was indicted on two counts of attempted aggravated murder, kidnapping and disrupting public service. He was arraigned in Portage County Municipal Court Nov. 7 by Judge John Enlow, who found him able to stand trial and appointed Dennis Lager, a public defender, to represent him.... Rome is scheduled to be in court Nov. 16 for a pre-trial hearing and then for a trial by jury Nov. 21... ACCORDING to Lt. Rob Hagquist, police were called to Heather's Bryce Avenue home Nov. 2 about 10 p.m., after she reported she was shot in the shoulder by a man with a shotgun, who then fled. Rome was flown to Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center for treatment. Earlier on Nov. 2, Heather Rome filed a police report, claiming Charles was harassing her on the telephone. With help from surrounding area law enforcement teams, Aurora police searched for Charles Rome throughout the night and into the early morning hours, according to Hagquist. He said Rome was arrested without incident at a business on Campus Drive, after an employee called police to report a suspicious person had entered. In a 911 call released by police, a woman who identified herself as Heather Rome said a man she couldn't identify came in her front door and shot her in the arm with a shotgun. She said two of her three children - ages 2 and 4 - were with her. They were unharmed, and police said all are in the care of their grandmother.
