Detective: Fay Lied To Investigators
A Putnam County Sheriff's detective says a teenager accused of killing two brothers lied to investigators after his arrest.
The detective testified in court that 18-year-old Michael Fay told authorities two different versions about what happened before admitting he had made up the stories. Fay's attorney says investigators used coercive tactics to get the statements and wants them thrown out of the case. Fay has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder in the May 9th killings of 14-year-old Blaine Romes and his 17-year-old brother, Blake. Police arrested Fay later that day in Columbus. He is accused of killing the brothers at the Ottawa mobile home he and his mother were sharing with the boys and their mother.
