Juvenile's Ohio Craigslist case transferred

The case of a juvenile suspect in a deadly Ohio Craigslist robbery scheme will be moved out of the county where two slaying victims were found and another was shot but survived.

A court official in Noble County in southern Ohio also says the gag order in the case has been lifted.

Tonda Brown, Noble County Court Assignment Commissioner, says the decision to transfer the case of Brogan Rafferty to Summit County came after a hearing Friday afternoon.

Brown also says Noble County Judge John Nau lifted the two-month-old gag order in the case.

The transfer of 16-year-old Rafferty came the same day that the chief suspect in the case was charged with aggravated murder, robbery, kidnapping and other charges in the deaths of three men and the wounding of a fourth.
