Wagner family arrested in Ohio murder of Rhoden family



COLUMBUS, Ohio — A family of four was arrested Tuesday in the gruesome slayings of eight people from another family in rural southern Ohio two years ago. It's the first break in a case that left a community reeling and surviving family members wondering if answers would ever come.

Those arrested were four members of the Wagner family, who lived near the scenes of the killing about 60 miles south of Columbus. One suspect, Edward "Jake" Wagner, 26, was once the boyfriend of one of the eight victims, 19-year-old Hanna Rhoden. Also arrested were his parents, George "Billy" Wagner III, 47, and Angela Wagner, 48, and his brother, George Wagner, 27. The Wagners had since moved to Alaska.

"We promised that the day when come when arrests would be made in the Pike County massacres," Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said at a news conference. "Today is that day."

No motive has been announced, but officials said custody of a young child played a role.

They were from SOUTH Ohio.

They must be related to the Hatfields and McCoys
