Two men have been indicted on aggravated murder charges in the beating death of a teen who was left at a southwest Ohio hospital.
Court records don't list attorneys for them. They're from Franklin.
Authorities say 16-year-old Dione Payne of Dayton was beaten in an attempt to steal drugs and money from him at a home about 15 miles south of Dayton. Police say Payne was left at a Middletown hospital Dec. 1 and later died.
Watson and Geldrich could get life in prison without parole if convicted of aggravated murder.
A third defendant was indicted on a robbery-related charge but isn't charged in Payne's death.
