DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio prosecutor says a man suspected of shooting his pastor brother in a church office as Sunday services were ending faces an aggravated murder charge.

Dayton police say the Rev. William B. Schooler was shot on Sunday at St. Peter’s Missionary Baptist Church. Sixty-eight-year-old Daniel Gregory Schooler was arrested at the church.

Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck on Tuesday announced charges of aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault and having a weapon under disability against Daniel Schooler.

Heck says most of the charges also allege Schooler is a repeat violent offender, which could boost his sentence if convicted.

It’s not clear if Schooler has an attorney yet who could respond to the charges.
