Man's trial in 8 slayings set for April after brother's plea

WAVERLY, Ohio (AP) — A trial is scheduled next spring for a man who along with his brother and parents was charged in the slayings of eight people from another southern Ohio family. A judge announced the April 4 trial date for George Wagner IV during his court appearance Monday in Ohio’s Pike County. The 29-year-old has pleaded not guilty in the 2016 slayings of seven adults and a teenage boy from the Rhoden family. His 28-year-old brother pleaded guilty two months ago and agreed to cooperate against the other defendants, under a deal to help spare them all potential death sentences. The brothers' parents have pleaded not guilty.
