COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for a 27-year-old man if he’s convicted of aggravated murder in the June slayings of four people at an Ohio home.
The Franklin County grand jury on Thursday returned a 29-count indictment charging Robert Lee Adams of Columbus in the fatal shootings of four people ranging in age from 18 to 41 on June 13. A fifth person was shot but survived.
A 16-year-old boy accused of helping Adams is charged as a juvenile with murder and kidnapping. He pleaded not guilty.
Police said Adams told investigators that the teen suspect was the one who pulled the trigger.
Adams is being held with a $10 million bond and is scheduled to be in court for an arraignment on Monday.
