Pair convicted of casino robberies

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Hamilton County jury convicted two men of several robberies outside of local casinos.

Kenyatta Erkins, 35 and Ugbe Ojile, 34 were found guilty of several counts of robbery, aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

The pair were convicted with working with Amy Hoover, 25, of the robberies. The trio would go to local Indiana casinos and watch for people to win a lot of money. They would then follow the winners to their home or hotel room and rob them at gunpoint.

Hoover plead guilty to the robberies in April. As part of the plea deal, Hoover testified against Erkins and Ojile.

The judge in the case delayed sentencing Tuesday so that the judge could conduct a pre-sentence investigation, which their attorneys asked for.
