Officer who shot, killed murder suspect back on duty

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The officer who shot and killed Edward Mwaura while he stabbed his six-year-old daughter is back on the job.

Last month, after a thorough investigation, the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office determined South Bend Police Lieutenant Steven Noonan was justified in the use of deadly force.

Noonan says he entered the bedroom and saw Mwaura stabbing Shirley Munida with a knife.

That is when Noon says he fired two shots, killing Mwaura.
