MILLERSBURG, Ohio – An investigator says two loaded guns were found on the bed of a 10-year-old Ohio boy charged as a juvenile with murder in the shooting death of his mother.
Chief Deputy Nathan Fritz of the Holmes County Sheriff's Office says one weapon was a .22-caliber rifle investigators believe was used to fire the fatal shot. Fritz tells The Daily Record of Wooster (WU'-stur) the other was a 12-gauge shotgun.
The newspaper reports investigators think the guns were given to the child by his now-deceased grandfather.
Mother Deborah McVay was found dead Sunday night of a single gunshot wound to the head at the home in Big Prairie, about midway between Cleveland and Columbus. Her son's attorney on Monday entered the juvenile equivalent of a not guilty plea.
