CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Two family members of a young woman who was fatally beaten in a neighborhood brawl in central Ohio last week are being held on $500,000 bail each after being charged with participating in the melee.
A judge set bail Tuesday for 26-year-old Daniel Harris and 18-year-old Angel Haines. They are charged with aggravated riot in the brawl last Wednesday that left 21-year-old Brittany Jeffers dead.
Circleville Municipal Court Judge Gary Dumm said Harris, who is Jeffers' uncle, and her stepsister Haines will be allowed out of jail to attend her funeral Thursday.
The Circleville Herald (http://bit.ly/16tPfbs ) reports that two other adults and four juveniles are also being held in connection with the riot, but nobody has been directly charged with Jeffers' death.
Jail booking records did not list attorneys.
