CELINA, Oh. (www.incnow.tv) --- Running down a laundry list of criminal charges.

One of two men accused in a heinous home invasion and double murder in Mercer County Ohio was back in court Monday.

It took more than a half an hour just to read all the charges to 19-year old Trevin Sanders Roark.

A grand jury indicted him last week on 27 counts, in the November 2011 murders of Robert Grube and his daughter Colleen.

He had nothing to say as he walked into the courthouse, his hands in cuffs, and his feet in chains.

He answered “Yes your honor” during the hearing, each time he was asked if he understood the indictments, which in addition to aggravated murder, also include aggravated robbery and burglary and kidnapping.

Detectives say Sanders Roark told them, he, co-defendant Bryant Rhoades, and an unknown man and woman smoked meth together, then hatched a plot to break into the Grube’s home to steal pills, cash and jewelry.

Once inside, the victims were bound with duct tape, and items were taken, including a handgun Sanders Roark claims he used to kill Colleen Grube.

Rhoades is accused of murdering her father with the same weapon.

Prosecutors and Sanders Roark’s newly appointed attorney would not comment on the case.

The judge ordered that the defendant continue to be held on $5,000,000 bond, leading up to a July 2nd arraignment hearing.
