CHARDON, Ohio — Authorities say two northeast Ohio men have been indicted in the 2010 slaying of a 17-year-old boy.
The announcement by Geauga County officials Thursday came three years to the day that Daniel Swan’s body was found bloodied and unconscious in the middle of road northeast of Cleveland. He died three weeks later.
Indictments were issued for 26-year-old Dustin Plottke and 23-year-old Matthew Boone. Geauga County Sheriff Dan McClelland said they killed Swan in a “random act of violence” after finding him walking home along a road.
The sheriff’s office got a break in the case when one of the suspects was arrested recently for an unrelated crime. During the investigation, detectives found evidence that linked them to Swan’s death.
There was no attorney information available for the suspects.
