CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - An 18-year-old former Woodward High School student has been arrested in connection with a murder at the Richie's Restaurant in Bond Hill.

Cincinnati Police have arrested 18-year-old William Pennington and charged him with Aggravated Murder in the death of Antonio Smith, and with Aggravated Robbery of Richie's Restaurant.

On October 30, 2010, Cincinnati Police say two armed men walked into the Richie's Restaurant located in the 4800 block of Reading Road in Bond Hill and demanded money from Antonio Smith. When they were denied, the two suspects shot Smith.

Pennington was already in jail for an unrelated robbery. The murder case will be handled through juvenile court, because Pennington was 17 years old when it happened.
