Rumble The third suspect charged with killing eight members of the Rhoden family in the Pike County massacre pleaded not guilty Thursday. Angela Wagner, 48, is facing 22 charges, including eight counts of aggravated murder with death penalty specifications. Wagner waived her right to a speedy trial and Judge Randy Deering ordered that she be held without bond. Authorities said that Wagner, along with her husband, 47-year-old George "Billy" Wagner III, and their two sons, 27-year-old George Wagner IV and 26-year-old Edward "Jake" Wagner, conspired to kill the eight victims and carried out the slayings on April 22, 2016 in rural Pike County. Attorney General Mike DeWine, who is also the governor-elect, said that a custody dispute played a role in the plot.
