(Waverly, OH) — Police are charging a family of four with the murders of eight people in what was one of the most brutal crimes in Ohio history. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the members of the Wagner family are charged with aggravated murder for the execution-style killings of eight members of the Rhoden family back in 2016. The suspects, which include a husband, wife and their two adult sons, face the death penalty for the crime. DeWine says the Wagner family spent months meticulously planning the crimes, studying the victims’ habits and routines, as well as the layout of their homes. He didn’t elaborate on the motive, but suggested the custody of a young child left alive at the scene played a role.
