Nov. 4 trial date set in slayings of Ohio teens

OTTAWA, Ohio (AP) — A judge has set a Nov. 4 trial date for a 17-year-old boy charged in the slayings of two teen brothers in northwest Ohio.

The trial date was set during a hearing for Michael Aaron Fay on Thursday in Putnam County.

Fay is charged with two counts of aggravated murder in 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. He has pleaded not guilty to the adult felony charges.
