$1M bail set for men charged in Ohio teen's death

FRANKLIN, Ohio (AP) - Bail has been set at $1 million for two men in southwest Ohio who have been charged with murder after a badly beaten teen was left at a hospital and died from his injuries.

Thirty-nine-year-old Michael Watson and 36-year-old Michael Geldrich were jailed on aggravated murder and aggravated robbery charges.

The Franklin men are scheduled for a Dec. 10 hearing. Court officials said Tuesday that attorneys would be appointed for them.

Franklin Police Chief Russ Whitman says investigators discovered that 16-year-old Dione Payne went to Franklin to sell drugs. Police said he was beaten and robbed at a home about 15 miles south of Dayton.

Police say Payne, of Dayton, was left Sunday at a Middletown hospital and transferred to a Dayton hospital, where he died.
