Reynolds County shooting suspects Timothy Callahan, 44, and David Young, 67, were extradited to on November 1, and have appeared in court for their arraignment. Their case has been set for November 15.
Both men appeared before an Ohio judge on Monday, October 30. According to court documents, in Reynolds County Callahan is currently facing two counts of first-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action, and one count each of first-degree robbery, first-degree assault or attempt serious physical injury or special victim.
Young is currently facing two counts of first-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action, first-degree robbery, first-degree assault or attempt serious physical injury or special victim.
During their arraignment, both Callahan and Young waived extradition to Missouri. Both are facing charges in Ohio for being a fugitive of justice.
These charges are following a triple shooting that occurred only a few miles outside the town of Ellington. James and Janet Nance both passed away from injuries obtained during the assault.
A third victim, able to assist investigators and give a description of the suspects, is still recovering from being shot twice in the head. All three victims were shot execution style. According to court documents, it is believed that Callahan and Young had intentions of robbing James Nance.
During the robbery, Janet and a friend arrived at the home and were subsequently assaulted. Both men were arrested in Warren County, Ohio after receiving a tip that the suspects might be staying at the Best Western Mason Inn in Deerfield Township.
Young was arrested on an outstanding warrant for a felony charge of financial exploitation of an elderly or disabled person.
Young had previously been arrested in St. Francois County for scamming an elderly couple out of a large sum of money and charged with a class B felony. At the time of the arrests, Callahan was taken in as a person of interest in the murders of James and Janet Nance.
Court documents state that during his arraignment, Callahan confessed to the murders.
