XENIA, Ohio: Two brothers accused in a double fatal shooting have each been indicted on aggravated murder and murder charges in southwestern Ohio.

Twenty-six-year-old Dustin Merrick and 24-year-old Bret Merrick also are charged with aggravated burglary and felonious assault, among other counts, in the indictments filed Thursday in Greene County Common Pleas Court in Xenia.

Authorities say the brothers are accused in the slayings of 44-year-old William Brown and 63-year-old Sherri Mendenhall in Miami Township, just east of Dayton. Both were found dead Jan. 15. Mendenhall was found in a duplex driveway and Brown was inside.

Dustin Merrick’s attorney, Thomas Kollin, says his client maintains his innocence. Bret Merrick’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call for comment.
