CIRCLEVILLE -- The grandson of an 84-year-old central Ohio man killed during a break-in has been charged in his death.

Three others also were indicted Friday in the slaying while a fifth person was charged with burglary and theft.

Two of the five charged are teens.

The Pickaway County Sheriff's office says Thomas Whitson was found dead at his home last weekend after what appeared to be a robbery.

Investigators say they recovered several firearms missing from Whitson's home in Orient.

Charges against Whitson's grandson include aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and grand theft.
