The teenager accused of killing two brothers in Ottawa appeared in court for a suppression hearing Tuesday. The Courier reports the lawyer for 18-year-old Michael Fay wanted statements made by the teenager to police thrown out of evidence. William Kluge claimed authorities coerced statements out of his client and failed to properly read Fay his Miranda rights.
The prosecution in the case said that Fay made conflicting statements about where Blake and Blaine Romes were on May 9. According to the newspaper a court filing made by Assistant Prosecutor Todd Schroeder says that Fay initially told police he had dropped off the Romes brothers at a Dayton area rest stop. The filing says Fay then told Putnam County investigators a different story; that men with guns came into the trailer where the boys all lived and started shooting.
Judge Randal Basinger is expected to rule on the motion within a week.
Fay is charged with two counts of aggravated murder, two counts of abuse of a corpse, one count of tampering with evidence, and one count of grand theft of a motor vehicle.
