Teen Likely To Be Tried As Adult In Quadruple Homicide

Franklin County Auditor
Four people were shot at this E. Hudson St. home early Saturday morning. A teen, accused of being an accomplice, will likely be tried as an adult.

The 16 year old accused in a quadruple homicide over the weekend will likely be tried as an adult.  

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said Jordyn Wade’s case will automatically be handled in adult court if probable cause is established.

O'Brien said a probable cause hearing is set for Wednesday, June 17. 

O’Brien would not discuss a motive, but he added Wade was not the so-called "trigger man."

“He aided another person in corralling people inside the home and marching them into the basement area at which time they were shot and killed by the other party," O'Brien said. "So [Wade] is an accomplice.”

Columbus Police continue to search for the shooter.

Wade is charged with four counts of murder and five kidnapping counts. One woman survived the shootings.

The murder charges carry 15 years to life as an adult.
