Bloody trail in Ohio probe in 2 brothers’ deaths

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An arraignment is scheduled Tuesday for a 17-year-old charged in the deaths of two teenage brothers.

The aggravated murder charges announced Friday against Michael Fay came just over a week after he and the teens were named in an Amber Alert.

The alert was issued after the slain brothers’ mother discovered a gun and blood inside a trailer home where the three boys lived with their mothers.

The brothers, 14-year-old Blaine Romes and 17-year-old Blake Romes, were found dead several hours later.

According to The (Toledo) Blade (, court documents unsealed Friday said the first police officer at the scene followed the bloody trail throughout the mobile home to the back door.
