Man Sentenced in 2011 Double-Murder Case in Mercer County, Ohio

MERCER COUNTY, Ohio. (WOWO): Bryant Rhoades has been sentenced to life without parole for his involvement in a 2011 double-murder in Mercer County, Ohio.


According to our partners in news at 21 Alive, Rhoades appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and pleaded guilty on six counts, including two counts of aggravated murder for his role in the murders of father and daughter, Robert and Colleen Grube.


In November 2011, the victims were found bound with duct tape, shot to death in their home.


Co-Defendant Trevin Sanders Roark, Rhoades' accomplice, also pleaded guilty to two counts of murder earlier this year for his role in the killings.


He told police he smoked meth with Rhoades before coming up with a plan to break into the Grube's home to steal pills, money, electronics, and jewelry.


Roark has yet to be sentenced.
