Two men were indicted Monday on charges of murder in connection with the December 2008 death of Richard Boynton Jr., 78.
Patrick Satterfield, 20, and Christopher Young, 24, face charges of malice murder, felony murder, burglary, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Young also faces charges of possession of a firearm by a first offender and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.
Boynton was found dead in his Burnside Drive home. Police were called around midnight Dec. 5, 2008, to check on an open door at the elderly man’s east Columbus home, which witnesses said appeared to have been burglarized. Officers found Boynton fatally shot in the chest.
Satterfield and Young were arrested in September.
