Man Will Face Murder Charges In "Craigslist" Killings

A 52-year-old man will face murder charges in the so-called Craigslist killings. Prosecutors in Akron Monday announced their intentions to charge Richard Beasley with murder and attempted murder. Three deaths are under investigation in the alleged plot to lure victims with a phony Craigslist job ad. Beasley remains in jail on unrelated charges and has denied any involvement. A teen acquaintance of his from Akron has been already charged with murder.
