The case of a first-degree felony rape at a Milton Township campground was bound over to a Mahoning County grand jury. Lee T. Mosley, 35, of New Castle, Pa., waived his preliminary hearing in Mahoning County Area Court on Wednesday.
The accuser is a teenage girl. Mosley’s bond was set at $250,000 cash or surety, and he is in the Mahoning County jail.
Milton Township police were called to the Green Acres Lake Park campground on Creed Road in Diamond about 4 a.m. Sunday. Mosley was arrested Sunday.
Man dies in prison
John C. Grantz, 67, of Leavittsburg, sentenced to life in prison in December 2013 for raping one girl over seven years and molesting another, has died in prison.
Grantz, of Burnett Road, died Monday in Pickaway Correctional Institution in Orient. His death appears to have occurred as a result of natural causes, said the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
Grantz pleaded guilty in Trumbull County to four counts of rape that carried life prison sentences, two other rape counts and three counts of gross sexual imposition.
