Murder Suspects Arrested in Ohio
The Lawrence County, Indiana sheriff says two teenagers wanted in connection with the beating death and robbery of a man in his remote home have been arrested in Ohio.
Sheriff Sam Craig says 19-year-old Taylor Flynn of Bedford and a 16-year-old youth were arrested on murder warrants Saturday in Ironton, Ohio, after leading police there on a chase.
The sheriff says extradition proceedings will begin this week.
The two were sought following the discovery of the body of 43-year-old Rodney Allender Thursday night at his rural home in northeastern Lawrence County.
A third teenager, 18-year-old Austin Curtin of Bedford, was being held without bond Sunday at the Lawrence County Jail in Bedford facing preliminary charges of murder and robbery.
The Bedford Times-Mail reports Curtin was arrested early Saturday.
