2 suspects indicted in slaying of elderly Ohio couple; 1 suspect could face death penalty

Two men suspected of abducting and killing an elderly Ohio couple have been indicted on charges including aggravated murder, kidnapping and robbery.

An indictment released Monday charges 29 -year-old Robert Clark with multiple counts of aggravated murder with death penalty specifications for using a gun. Twenty-one-year-old Jeffery Stewart's aggravated murder charges don't include those specifications.

They're charged in the slayings of 88-year-old Doyle Chumney and his 79-year-old wife, Lillian. The couple lived in Tuscarawas (tuhs-kuh-RAW'-uhs) County. They were reported missing Jan. 21, and their bodies were found in their badly burned car the next day.

Clark led authorities on a nationwide manhunt before his Feb. 5 arrest in Arizona.

Authorities have said both suspects have implicated themselves. No attorney information was available for the men.
