THOMPSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Two men face murder charges in connection with a cold case murder from 2010.

Dustin Plottke and Matthew Boone, both of Rome, are accused in the beating death of 17-year-old Daniel Swan.

Swan was found badly beaten and unconscious on Sidley Road in Thompson Township exactly three years ago on Thursday. He died several weeks later.

The Geauga County Sheriff's Office said Plottke and Boone committed a random act of violence.

They're both being held at the Geauga County Jail for aggravated murder, murder and felonious assault. Bond is expected to be set on Friday.
