Grand Jury Fails To Indict Robert Moser

(HAMILTON, OH) -- A Butler County grand jury has failed to indict a teen who was involved in creating a bomb that killed his friend.

Robert Moser, 19, was charged with involuntary manslaughter and illegally manufacturing or processing explosives, both felonies, and contributing to the unruliness of a minor, a misdemeanor.

Moser was not indicted on the felonies and those charges were dropped. He still faces the charge of contributing to the deliquency of a minor.

Moser, two other juveniles and their friend, Daniel Ferraro, were trying to blow up a wooden fort in West Chester in early January when Ferraro was hit by debris from a video camera during the explosion and killed.

Ferraro's family has been supportive of Moser.

"I would hope they would see that there was no malicious intent here," said Tony Ferraro, Daniel's father, last month. "They were good kids that made a bad judgement call they should have never been playing with anything like that they should never have been building something like that."
