FAIRFIELD, Ohio – A man facing murder and weapons charges after accusations of involvement in the death of a 19-year-old is scheduled to appear in a Butler County courtroom Wednesday to begin his trial.
Jerry Eacholes, 21, is among five suspects who were accused of involvement in the death of 19-year-old Julian Slaven on Nov. 24, 2012.
Police say the group entered Slaven's home on Judy Drive and shot and killed him.
On Dec. 5, 2012 a Butler County grand jury indicted Joseph Goodin, Anthony Givens, Misty Williams, Eacholes and Christia Frymire on charges of murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary. Goodin and Eacholes also were indicted for having weapons while under disability.
Goodin, Givens and Williams all pleaded guilty and were sentenced to 18 years to life in prison for their role in the crime.
The weapons under disability charges against Eacholes carry a penalty of a maximum of 36 months in prison.
Eacholes is scheduled to appear in court at 1 p.m.
