Teen charged with murder in brothers' killing

An arraignment is scheduled Tuesday for a 17-year-old charged in the deaths of two teenage brothers in northwest Ohio.

The aggravated murder charges announced Friday against Michael Fay came just over a week after he and the teens were named in an Amber Alert.

The alert was issued after the slain brothers' mother discovered a gun and blood inside a trailer home where the three boys lived with their mothers.

The brothers, 14-year-old Blaine Romes and 17-year-old Blake Romes, were found dead several hours later.

According to The (Toledo) Blade (bit.ly/12KcFH8), court documents unsealed Friday said the first Ottawa police officer at the scene followed the bloody trail throughout the mobile home to the back door.

The complaint alleges that Fay committed the killings "purposely" and with "prior calculation and design" in the trailer.

The statement said the officer saw tire tracks and reported "it appeared as if something was drug through the grass." The tire tracks led away from the mobile home trailer, the officer said.

At that point, officials believed that all three teens had been kidnapped and "one or more may be injured," so schools and medical centers were contacted, but no one reported seeing any of them.

Fay told officers that the Romes brothers were dead and pointed authorities to their bodies after he was found with a stolen car at a gas station in Columbus, about 120 miles southeast of the trailer park in Ottawa, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said.

Fay's attorney and his mother have declined to comment.

Another thing, BULLISDEEP, if you want respect in a comment section, tone down your handle/screen name and don't use all caps for anything unless it's for emphasis.

Shut up

luvblues2

That's great. I teach you something and you tell me to shut up. You get no more from me.

If I wanted to read the Blade I would have went to their site. Comprende?

luvblues2

Don't ask questions if you don't want answers. Pretty simple.

deertracker

Pretty simple to just complete the article too! Providing a link is not completing the article. Pretty simple!

If clicking a mouse is too much trouble for you, I suggest staying off the internet. It does require "some" navigational skills.

deertracker

How about you navigate your way away from my comments. I didn't kick your dog or put salt in your coffee. Going to the bathroom also requires "navigational skills".

I'm really surprised that even though he's being charged as an adult that they released his name. The girl that recently turned 18 and was charged as an adult even though the incident happened when she was a minor over the beating of the guy on Ging St has still not had her name released. But it's just a sad situation all the way around. Has anyone ever said why he did it?

Luvblues you are a joke... Tone it down don't use caps blah blah blah a old nagging wife I feel sorry if you have a spouse or kids you sound like a whining baby. As long as people are getting there point across who cares.

luvblues2

huronguy. I'm at least giving lessons for free. If you felt I was nagging, that's your problem, entirely. It wasn't my intention. Some instructors don't play games. I paid for my instruction. And actually, everything I teach/instruct about can be found online if one wants to research. For free. You won't get a degree for it, unless you can test out in college. You still have to pay for that course, even if you did test out.

I didn't make the rules. I'm following them.

saxkris

Yeap, your a fine example of a %^^&&

luvblues2

I had good instructors. :)

Be careful what you play with....

So was Fay related to the Romes brothers? I'm still a little confused of that??

Here's where I am on the story....
It seems that a woman with one son (Michel) was living with a man who had two sons (Blaine and Blake) in a mobile home. Michel (is under investigation for) killed Blaine and Blake. The names were released in an Amber Alert when mother came home from work and found a crime scene, but no kids. Michele was arrested in Columbus at a gas station (?)driving a stolen car. I don't know whose car it was. It seems odd because if both parents were not home then their cars would also be gone. Blaine was 17. Maybe the car was his?

Unassumer

woman. women is plural (meaning more than one). Michael is the kid's name. Michel is french or Michele is a girl's name.

IXMNU

previous reports have stated that it was actually two women living together as a couple and not a man and woman. not that it makes a difference. this is still a tragedy.

eriemom

Thanks unassumer. I have always needed an editor.
IXMNU: That makes more sense. Yes, a tragedy.

OH-IO

Wow. Does anyone get the chance to grow up anymore? What happened to baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Cheverolets? Cedar Point?

OH-IO
