Pike County massacre arrests new conference
Four members of the Wagner family spent months planning to kill their friends and cover up their tracks, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Tuesday. Authorities arrested George "Billy" Wagner III, 47; Angela Wagner, 48; George Wagner IV, 27 and Edward "Jake" Wagner, 26 Tuesday and charged them each with eight counts of aggravated murder with death penalty specifications, as well as other crimes, for the deaths of eight members of the Rhoden family in the 2016 Pike County massacre. "They were brutally and viciously executed," DeWine said. Two other family members were also charged with helping to cover up the crime, according to DeWine.
