A Nelsonville man has been bound over for trial in the April deaths of his girlfriend and their two children. Prosecutors say Shane Kettner shot his two young children to death at their home in rural Portage County in April. But they stopped short of saying that Kettner stabbed his girlfriend Christine Golon.
District attorney Tom Eagon says they'll wait to rule on Golon's cause of death until the final autopsy is done. A deputy found Kettner and a six-month-old girl overcome by gas fumes when they did a welfare check at the home April 30th. Investigators think Kettner was going to set the house on fire. Eagon said they'll decide whether to file additional charges before Kettner is arraigned August 24th.
Police say Kettner had armed and barricaded himself inside the home. He remains jailed on a half-million dollar cash bond.
