Dead Ottawa teens remembered in funeral service

OTTAWA, Ohio (AP) — More than 600 people turned out at a northwest Ohio church to mourn two teenage brothers who were found dead last week.

Seventeen-year-old Blake Romes and 14-year-old Blaine Romes were remembered in a funeral service Wednesday at a Catholic church in the village of Ottawa where they lived.

The Lima News ( ) reports that the brothers, who were found dead May 9 after another teen told authorities where to find the bodies, were recalled as young men who cared for each other.

A 911 from the boys' mother said she had discovered a gun and lots of blood inside the trailer home where they lived. Authorities have not said how the boys died or where their bodies were found.

A 17-year-old boy is in custody charged with auto theft.
