Three People Charged With Murder

WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) _ Two men and a teenage girl have been charged with murder in the death of a Florida man whose body was found Monday in an Ohio motel room.

The Butler County coroner says 31-year-old Sabyasachi Debnath of Naples, Florida, had been bound with tape and stabbed at least eight times in an apparent robbery.

Police have filed murder charges against 18-year-old Michael Douglass of Middletown, Ohio, 18-year-old Roger Lee Whitten of Hamilton, Ohio, and Whitten's sister, a 16-year-old from Parksly, Virginia.

The two men are being held on bond of $1 million each. The girl is being held at a juvenile detention center, though Prosecutor Robin Piper says she will be tried as an adult.
