Scioto County Indictment
(WOUB) - A Scioto County farmer is facing murder charges in the shooting death of a Chillicothe teen who was allegedly trying to take a bale of hay from his property.

Eric Whisman of Blue Creek has been indicted on two counts of murder, two counts of felonious assault and one count of discharging a firearm.

Investigators say in October, Whisman shot at two boys taking a bale of hay from his home and 17-year old Nathaniel Kennedy was killed.

Prosecutors say Whisman could face life behind bars - if convicted.
