MOUNT EATON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man has been charged with killing his parents, whose bodies were found in the blood-splattered basement of their farmhouse.
The sheriff's office in northeast Ohio's Wayne County on Friday filed two counts of aggravated murder and one count of aggravated burglary against 31-year-old Rodney R. Stutzman. He was arrested without incident late Thursday in West Virginia.
Sheriff Thomas Maurer says in a news release that a preliminary investigation indicates parents Mervin and Viola Stutzman were shot with a shotgun.
Officers discovered the bodies on Thursday after another son, living in Indiana, reported he had not heard from his mother and father for days.
