Fifteen-year-old Larry Mugrage was on his way home to get a video game when he was shot dead, said a neighbor whose teenage stepsons and brother were regular playmates of the victim.
"He was just walking home," Alicia Holt said.
The afternoon shooting followed a confrontation four hours earlier between the teen and another neighbor, 66-year-old Charles Martin, after Mugrage had stepped on the lawn of Martin's Hawthorne Drive home, Holt said.
"He came out cussing at Larry," said Holt, 24, who lives several houses away from Martin's and Mugrage's homes on the same side of the street. "They just had words."
Union Township police have charged Martin with murder. Police said Martin fired two rounds from a .410-gauge shotgun at the teen. An autopsy will determine if more than one blast struck the victim.
Martin called 911 Sunday to report the shooting. "I just killed a kid," he calmly told the 911 operator. Martin said the victim, his parents and other youths had been harassing him for five years.
"I shot him with a (word deleted) .410 shotgun twice," Martin said. "He's laying in the yard."
Investigators plan to present the case to a grand jury Wednesday, Lt. Scott Gaviglia said.
Martin was arraigned Monday afternoon in Clermont County Municipal Court. Judge James A. Shriver ordered him held without bond pending a Thursday hearing. Article here.

The Pit Stop is billed as the first male and female friendly urinal system designed for truckers on the go.
"Pit Stop helps keep the environment clean, saving taxpayers a fortune on roadside cleanup. Since urine bottles are considered a biohazard, expensive hazmat teams are required for cleanup, instead of standard roadside cleanup crews."
The receptacle on Pit Stop is supposed to be mounted to the wall near the trucker's sleeper bunk. However, the makers of Pit Stop says that they're committed to helping truckers eliminate unplanned stops. So, are truckers supposed to use this while driving, or what?
Does this mean truckers drive with their pants down?
A man chased into an open field on foot by sheriff's deputies early Tuesday sank into a quagmire (a soft wet area of low-lying land that sinks underfoot) and died after deputies were unable to rescue him.
County sheriff's Sgt. Don Peritz says deputies had stopped the man in his vehicle for having an outdated registration sticker. They say the man fled into a nearby field after deputies learned he'd identified himself falsely.
According to the spokesman, deputies searched for about an hour before they found the man sunk up to his waist in a quagmire. They tried repeatedly over several hours to pull him out, but they, too, called for help after they began sinking into the cold mud.
The man eventually died before he could be removed.
Wait- what? He was up to his waist in mud, and then he just died? WTF? How the hell does that happen? I feel like they police aren’t telling us something here… article here.
A resort often means welcomed economic development for a rural area, but some folks in Lonedell, Missouri aren't very happy with a plan for a place to get an all-over tan.
Company president Lawrence Schulz said the skinny on skinny-dipping is that it's good business and will attract nudists from across the U.S. and Europe. But neighbor Stephanie York is worried vacationers dropping their drawers could drive down property values in the area.
Yeah, this is exactly what Missouri needs to break all the stereo-types that exist about their state- a naked RV park. Sweet move dude. But, on the other hand- who knows, maybe this is a smart move? Instead of fighting the ‘red-neck’ image, maybe they should embrace it. Lonedell, Missouri could be on the brink of creating a venue for a pilgrimage that rednecks all around the world will want to partake in. Whatever. Article here.
