Authorities announced today they’d made an arrest in the killings that shook several rural communities in west-central Ohio near the Indiana state line.

The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office says 18-year-old Trevin Sanders has been charged with aggravated murdered. Sanders is from Union City, a town that straddles Indiana and Ohio.
