NEW FRANKLIN - New Franklin Police have made a second arrest in the murders of a New Franklin couple.
According to New Franklin Police, with the assistance of Akron Police, officers have arrested a 14-year-old juvenile in connection with the double homicide of Jeffrey and Margaret Schobert.
The juvenile was arrested and transported to the Summit County Detention Center and has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder, two counts of agg. robbery and one count of aggravated burglary.
This is the second arrest in the double homicide case.
Shawn Ford, 18, was arrested and charged earlier this week on two counts of aggravated murder. He was dating the couple's daughter, Chelsea Schobert at the time of their deaths. Ford has also been charged for assaulting and stabbing Chelsea Schobert, who was recovering at an Akron area hospital when her parents were murdered.
It's unknown what role the 14-year-old played in the April 2 homicides, which were discovered by construction workers at Schobert's home around 2:22 p.m.
The Summit County Medical Examiner ruled the Schobert's cause of death as blunt impacts to the head. Police say Ford allegedly used a sledgehammer during the attacks.
