CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Central Oho police say additional charges have been filed in in connection with the severe beating of a 21-year-old woman during a neighborhood brawl.

Circleville Police Chief Wayne Gray says four family members have been charged in the riot that left Brittany Jeffers dead last week.

The Circleville Herald reports Monday that 26-year-old Daniel Harris, the victim's uncle, and 18-year-old Angel Haines, the victim's stepsister, were arrested Monday on a charge of aggravated riot.

The paper also says two juveniles, the victim's younger stepbrother and stepsister, have been ordered to appear in Pickaway County Juvenile Court on misdemeanor charges of riot.

Police also filed rioting charges against two adults and two juveniles on Thursday, but no one has been directly charged yet with beating Jeffers a day earlier.
