Ohio teen pleads not guilty in double murder

Posted: Updated:

OTTAWA, Ohio (AP) - A 17-year-old boy has pleaded not guilty to adult murder charges in the slayings of two teen brothers in northwest Ohio.

Michael Aaron Fay was arraigned Thursday in Putnam County for the May 9 slayings of 14-year-old Blaine Romes and his 17-year-old brother Blake Romes.

Fay is accused of killing the siblings at the Ottawa mobile home he and his mother were sharing with the brothers and their mother.

Police found the bodies after Fay was arrested in Columbus and pointed officers to them.

Fay has pleaded not guilty to two counts each of aggravated murder and abuse of a corpse, and one count of theft of a vehicle.

Common Pleas Judge Randall Basinger set $5 million bond. Fay is being held at a juvenile detention center in Bowling Green.
