2 men indicted in death 
in Waterville Township

BLADE STAFF

A Lucas County grand jury on Thursday indicted two men for the shooting death of a carryout owner at his Waterville Township home.

James Allen, 18, of 1732 E. Westland Gardens Rd., and Ronald Rooker, 32, of 8930 S. River Rd., in Waterville Township, were indicted for aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, and aggravated robbery, each with a firearm specification. If convicted, they could face life in prison.

The charges stem from a May 18 home invasion in which three masked men dressed all in black broke into the home of James Safadi at 8940 S. River Rd., robbed him of cash, jewelry, and guns, then shot him to death.

Investigators with the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office have said they expect at least two other arrests in the case.

Both Mr. Allen and Rooker are held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $5 million bond.
