Fay enters not guilty plea to 6 count indictment

Posted: Updated:

The 17 year old charged in connection with the deaths of two Ottawa teenagers is arraigned in Putnam County Common Pleas Court.

Michael Fay is being tried as an adult as his case was bound over from juvenile court to common pleas court. Thursday he heard the charges against him as a grand jury handed down a six count indictment. 

They include 2 counts of aggravated murder, 2 counts of abuse of a corpse, one count tampering with evidence and one count grand theft of a motor vehicle.

 Fay's attorney entered a not guilty plea to all counts and Fay signed a waiver giving up his right to a speedy trial.

He is accused of killing brothers ,17 year old Blake and 14 year old Blaine Romes. Their bodies were found May 9th in two different locations in Putnam County after Michael Fay was found in Columbus which ended a day long amber alert that was issued on all three boys.

Judge Randall Bassinger continued Fay's bond at 5 millions dollars and remanded him back into the custody of the Wood County Juvenile Detention Center.

He is scheduled for pretrial on July 25th.
