CELINA - The man accused of obstructing justice in the murder investigation of Robert and Colleen Grube entered a not guilty plea on Monday.
Bryant Rhoades made an appearance in the Mercer County Common Pleas Court Monday. The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office claims Rhoades gave false information to investigators who were working on the Grube murder case. Rhoades was questioned on June 4, 2012 and told investigators that he had met with a female suspect in the case late in the evening that the Grubes were believed to have been killed in November 2011. Rhoades’ statements were later proved to be false.
Rhoades is being held in the Mercer County Jail on a $3.5 million bond.
The person charged with the murders of the Grubes, 18-year-old Trevin Sanders, in incarcerated in Michigan City, Indiana, on an unrelated charge. Officials in Ohio continue to try to extradite Sanders so that he can face the charges in Mercer County.
