Cameo Pettaway, who is charged in the murders of a Springfield Township couple, will face the death penalty if he is found guilty of the January slayings.

Mr. Pettaway, 22, was indicted by a Lucas County Grand jury Tuesday on two counts of aggravated murder, one count of aggravated burglary, and two counts of kidnapping.

Mr. Pettaway, whose last known address is 133 Essex Drive in Toledo, was arrested Oct. 10 for his alleged part in the asphyxiation deaths of Lisa Straub and Johnny Clarke, who were found bound with plastic bags over their heads in Miss Straub’s parents’ Longacre Lane home on Jan. 31.

Also charged in the murders is Samuel Todd Williams, 24, of 1626 Kelsey Ave. If convicted, he, too, could face the death penalty.

Mr. Pettaway’s mother, Kenyatta Baker, has told The Blade that the two men are close friends.
