COLUMBUS, Ohio (Associated Press) - A man who lost several relatives in a mass killing in southern Ohio more than four years ago has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against suspects.

Tony Rhoden Sr. is the brother of Gary Rhoden and Christopher Rhoden.

Both were killed along with Christopher Rhoden’s three children and his ex-wife and two others in April 2016.

Attorneys for Tony Rhoden filed a lawsuit Tuesday in a Pike County court seeking unspecified damages. He says he wants to ensure none of them benefit financially from the crime.
