Teen Suspect In Ohio Craigslist Case Due In Court

The juvenile suspect in a deadly scheme to rob people who replied to a Craigslist job ad is due in court after his case was transferred out of a rural Ohio county. Sixteen-year-old Brogan Rafferty is to appear Monday afternoon before a Summit County Juvenile Court judge in Akron. Rafferty's attorney, John Alexander, says the preliminary hearing will involve the review of charges and allow for bond to be discussed. A Noble County judge determined Friday that Rafferty's case should be transferred to Summit County, where Rafferty is from and where he'd been held in jail. Although two men were killed in Noble County and a third wounded there, neither the victims nor Rafferty and an adult suspect were from the county.
