Another court appearance for the Stow teen charged with taking part in the Craiglist killings.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports 17-year old Brogan Rafferty waived his right to a speedy trial in a brief court appearance Wednesday before Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Lynne Callahan.
An October 9th trial date was scheduled.
Rafferty still faces an April 17th hearing in Summit County Juvenile Court to determine if he will be tried as an adult in the slayings of two of the three men, 56-year old Ralph Geiger of Akron and 47-year old Timothy Kern of Massillon. They answered a bogus ad for a non-existent job on a Noble County farm.
Rafferty was earlier charged as an adult in Noble County for the slaying of 51-year old David Pauley of Virginia, and the shooting and wounding of 48-year old Scott Davis of South Carolina. It was Davis who first alerted police to the shootings.
Rafferty is charged with assisting 52-year old Richard Beasley of Akron in carrying out the murders, and then concealing the bodies in shallow graves.
