$1M bonds for 2 suspects in 4 slayings in NE Ohio

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Bond of $1 million each has been set for two men charged with killing four young people whose bodies were found in a townhome in northeast Ohio last month.

Bond was set Friday in Akron Municipal Court for 21-year-olds Deshanon Haywood and Derrick Brantley, both of Akron. Each has been charged with four counts of aggravated murder and four counts of aggravated robbery.

No attorneys are listed for the men in an online court docket. Their arraignments are scheduled for June 7.

The bodies of two men and two women were found in a basement April 18. According to autopsies, each victim was shot in the head.

Authorities haven’t disclosed a possible motive in the case.
