A teenager charged in the deaths of two Ottawa brothers appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and plead not guilty.
17 year old Michael Fay was in Putnam County Juvenile Court for an initial hearing on two counts of aggravated murder. Fay is alleged to have caused the deaths of brothers 17 year old Blake and 14 year old Blaine Romes on May 9.
The Toledo Blade reported that both teens had a single gunshot wound and that one of the boys was strangled.
Officials have declined to release more details while the case remains under investigation.
Fay also faces a charge of grand theft auto which he also pleaded not guilty to on May 10.
Following Tuesday’s hearing, Fay was remanded to the custody of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.
