PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) - A police officer in northern Ohio who prosecutors say threatened to kill his former boss has been charged with stalking.

A grand jury this week indicted Carroll Township police officer John Carpenter on menacing by stalking charges.

Prosecutors say Carpenter had been a deputy with the Ottawa County sheriff’s office until April, when he resigned after threatening his supervisor. Investigators say Carpenter was upset about his work schedule and told a co-worker that he was going to kill his boss.

Investigators also say that months later, after Carpenter began work as a police officer, he followed the former supervisor while he was on duty.

Court documents don’t show whether Carpenter has an attorney, and there is no telephone listing for him.

His first court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 21
