Hearing for 6 teens facing murder charge is postponed

Today's hearing for six Columbus teenagers accused of murder was postponed until Friday at 8 a.m. in Columbus Recorder's Court.

Senior Recorder's Court Judge Michael Cielinski rescheduled the hearing after a brief discussion with attorneys representing the six accused teens.

Facing murder charges in the death of 28-year-old Aubrey Hector, whose burned body was found by firemen extinguishing a burning vehicle last Friday in Flat Rock Park, are James Stewart, 18, of 5248 Spinnaker Court; Robert Hancock, 17, of 5317 Old Dominion Road; Frank Ravenel, 18, of 6 Trestlewood Court, Apt. 2; Vincent Clegg, 19, of 5405 Old Dominion Road; Kyle Klamer, 19, of 5202 Cunningham Drive; and Michael Jarvis, 18, of 6309 Rockefeller Drive.

Police investigators allege Hector's death was the result of a plot to rob the man of money and marijuana. Hector was shot elsewhere, then his car was driven to Flat Rock Park and set afire, police said.

In addition to the murder charge, the teenagers face charges of first-degree arson, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during commission of a crime.

The hearing on the charges has been rescheduled for 8 a.m. Friday in Recorder's Court.
