2 indicted on murder charges in separate Springfield deaths


A Clark County grand jury approved charges Monday against two men in connection with separate murder cases.

Harley Starling was found dead in the boys’ Superior Avenue home. Nicholas was arrested hours after police began their investigation, Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson said, and evidence points that the older brother allegedly beat the teen with a baseball bat and then stabbed him.

Last week a Clark County Juvenile Court approved moving the case to adult court, where Nicholas Starling could face life in prison without parole, Wilson said.

Nicholas Starling is booked in the Clark County Jail on a $100,000 bond, according to court records.

Tevius Turner, 35, has been indicted on charges related to the shooting death on Nov. 18 of 29-year-old Melody Turner, of Springfield.

A Clark County grand jury approved charges Monday of aggravated murder, murder, felony murder, felonious assault, tampering with evidence and improper handling firearms in a motor vehicle in the case, according to court records.

Police alleged that Tevius Turner shot Melody Turner while she was in a car with another man. The passenger was the intended target, police have said.

Tevius Turner was arrested in Kentucky and is booked in the Clark County Jail on a $1 million bond. He could face life in prison without parole if he’s found guilty in the case.

Both men are scheduled to appear in a Clark County Common Pleas court to be arraigned on the new charges later this week.

Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson reports that the Grand Jury met Monday and also returned the following indictments:

Cathy Caroppoli, 52, 5580 W. Parkwood Ave.: Breaking and entering

Benjamin Buck, 36, 735 Linden Ave.: Failure to comply with order or signal of a police officer.
