Michael Aaron Fay, 17, appeared before Judge Randall Basinger following his indictment by a grand jury. Fay has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder and two counts of abuse of a corpse, the latter fifth-degree felonies.
Fay was also indicted on one count of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony; and one count of grand theft of a motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony.
Following his counsel’s advice, Fay waived his right to a speedy trial.
“Ninety days is just not enough time for us to prepare fully,” Fay’s attorney, Bill Kluge said.
Judge Basinger also ruled to keep Fay’s bail at $5 million, which was set at a July 2 hearing, where Judge Michael Borer of Putnam County Juvenile Court bound Fay over to Common Pleas to be tried as an adult.
