BUCYRUS, Ohio (AP) — A man has been indicted on aggravated murder, robbery and other charges in the deaths of four men in separate homes in the small Ohio city of Bucyrus (byoo-SY’-rus).
The Crawford County prosecutor says a grand jury on Monday indicted 41-year-old Donald Hoffman on 21 counts, including some with specifications for a potential death penalty.
Hoffman has been jailed on a $10 million bond. A message was left for his attorney.
Two men were discovered dead in their homes Sept. 1. Two others were found the following day after police say Hoffman approached officers with information.
A coroner determined each man was beaten, strangled or both.
They ranged in age from 55 to 67. Friends and relatives say at least some of the men knew one another and Hoffman.
