FOSTORIA — Three teenage suspects, arrested after the shooting death of a Fostoria woman, have all made their first appearances in court.
Seventeen-year-old Garrett N. Brown had an initial hearing Friday in Seneca County Juvenile Court, Tiffin.
Tyson J. Ogg, 18, and Dallas A. Salaz, 19, were arraigned Thursday in Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court, where bond for each was set at $1.5 million.
The three were arrested Thursday after a Wednesday night burglary-turned-homicide at a residence at 218 E. Culbertson St., where Janelle Mauricio, 20, was fatally shot and 19-year-old Caleb Barto was assaulted, police said.
Brown went before Judge Jay Meyer of the Seneca County Juvenile Court for an initial hearing Friday. Brown is charged with aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and felonious assault for his alleged role in the assault and murder.
During the hearing, Brown was provided with an attorney. He was taken back to the Seneca County Youth Center until a future hearing is scheduled.
No bond was set for the juvenile.
A juvenile court representative said it is very likely Brown will be bound over to Seneca County Common Pleas Court and tried as an adult.
Ogg is charged with aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and felonious assault, and Salaz is charged with complicity to commit aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and felonious assault.
According to Fostoria Police Chief Keith Loreno, Barto and Mauricio were assaulted at the Culbertson Street residence where they lived.
Barto was treated and released from ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, which Loreno said were not from gunshots. Mauricio, who was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle, died as a result of gunshot wounds.
Mauricio’s body was taken by the Hancock County coroner to the Lucas County Coroner’s Office for an autopsy, Loreno said.
She was a 2011 graduate of Fostoria High School. Barto graduated from Fostoria High School in 2013.
