NW Ohio Teen To Be Tried As Adult In Double Murder Case


UPDATED: Tuesday July 2, 2013 1:51 PM

A 17-year-old accused of killing two brothers will be tried as an adult, according to WTOL-TV.

Michael Fay appeared in court on Tuesday.

Fay is accused of killing Blake and Blaine Romes in May. An Amber Alert was issued for all three teens at the time.

Fay was located at a Columbus gas station.

Although the murder charges Fay faces could bring the death penalty for someone over the age of 18, Fay's age at the time of the alleged crimes means the maximum penalty he could face is life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to WTOL-TV.
