18-year-old pleads guilty in killings of teen brothers

OTTAWA, Ohio – An 18-year-old man has pleaded guilty in the slayings of two teen brothers in northwest Ohio.

Michael Fay pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated murder Tuesday morning in Putnam County.

He faces up to life in prison in the May 9 slayings of 14-year-old Blaine Romes and his 17-year-old brother, Blake Romes. Fay is due to be sentenced next month.

Prosecutors said Fay killed the brothers at the Ottawa mobile home he and his mother were sharing with the brothers and their mother.

The brothers were found dead after Fay was arrested in Columbus and pointed officers to them.
