CELINA, Ohio – A teen who’s imprisoned in Indiana has been charged in the 2011 shooting deaths of a man with a disability and his daughter who had been bound with duct tape at their farmhouse in western Ohio.

The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that 18-year-old Trevin Sanders has been charged with aggravated murder in the killings, which shook several rural communities in west-central Ohio near the Indiana state line.

Sanders is from Union City, a town that straddles Indiana and Ohio. He’s been in prison in Indiana since last fall on unrelated charges.

Authorities found the bodies of 70-year-old Robert Grube and his 47-year-old daughter Colleen after an apparent robbery of their Fort Recovery farmhouse in November 2011
