Man held in 2011 cold-case double murder

Man charged with obstruction in slayings of disabled man and daughter


CELINA, Ohio — Authorities say a 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the 2011 slayings of a disabled man and his daughter at their farmhouse in western Ohio.

The Mercer County Sheriff's Office said Bryant Rhoades was arrested Tuesday. He is charged with obstruction of justice, but sheriff's officials haven't yet discussed the details of his alleged connection to the slayings.

Authorities found the bodies of 70-year-old Robert Grube and 47-year-old Colleen Grube after an apparent robbery of their Fort Recovery farmhouse in November 2011. Both had been bound with duct tape and shot.

Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey is expected to announce a second arrest at a news conference today.

Rhoades is being held with a $350,000 bond. Information about his legal representation wasn't available.
