AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) - Four teenagers accused of robbing and gunning down a Lebanon teenager whose body was found on the ball fields behind Hirsch Recreation Center will remain locked up at Hamilton County's juvenile jail.
Three of the teens are held without bond and will return to court again Sept. 10 for a probable cause hearing, a magistrate ruled Tuesday.
At that time, prosecutors will push to have them bound over to adult court, where the penalties upon conviction would be harsher and could result in them spending 15 years to life behind bars.
On Monday, a fugitive task force and Cincinnati police homicide detectives arrested the suspects: Desean Ward, 17, Charles Fann, 17 and Amir Evans, 16.
All three teens are charged with murder and aggravated robbery in the Aug. 26 death of Diondre Callionn Pacak, 18. Ward faces an additional charge of felonious assault.
On Wednesday, police arrested and charged Rasoan Dunbar, 18, with murder. He is being held on a $1 million bond.
Homicide detectives have not said what the teens are accused of taking during the alleged robbery or if they knew the victim beforehand.
Pacak's body was found on the ball fields just before 7 a.m. Police shut down almost an entire city block while they canvassed the large crime scene as children boarded a school bus.
Police had just responded to the area for an overnight shooting that critically injured a 21-year-old man.
