Body Found In Ohio House Fire Leads To 3 Arrests
Three men have been arrested on murder charges in connection with the body of a man found when firefighters were battling a house fire in central Ohio. Columbus police say firefighters found the body of 56-year-old Rick Rundblad inside a house in the northeast side of Columbus after they received a report of a fire at the property early Monday morning. Police records show a preliminary investigation indicated that Rundblad had been shot to death. The Columbus men in custody are 21-year-old John C. Brewster, 19-year-old Jamell C. Preston, and 18-year-old Marsean T. Sowards. Columbus police Sgt. Steven Little said several marijuana plants were confiscated from the burned house. Little said police are speculating the case was some a robbery "to rob (Rundblad) for the marijuana."
