Fostoria man is charged in brother's death

TIFFIN - After an interview yesterday, Seneca County sheriff's deputies last night charged a 37-year-old Fostoria man in his brother's death Sunday.

Tim Osterberg is being held in the Seneca County jail in the shooting death of his brother, Toby L. Osterberg, 33. Maj. Tim Thwaits last night declined to disclose a motive or other details but said authorities from three agencies investigating the crime have been focusing their efforts on Tim Osterberg.

Mr. Osterberg was interviewed at the Seneca County Sheriff's Office yesterday, where he was later arrested.

The sheriff's office received a call just after 10 p.m. Sunday from Fostoria police saying a man had been shot and was later pronounced dead at the local hospital. Investigators initially labeled the incident a suspicious death but on Monday declared it a homicide.
