CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio police chief says a 21-year-old woman was beaten to death in a neighborhood brawl last month when she jumped in after two teens had already started fighting in the street.
Circleville Police Chief Wayne Gray told the Circleville Herald (http://bit.ly/YcWXpl ) that the March 27 melee started after someone reported a break-in at a neighbor's home.
Gray said that's when a 16-year-old girl started fighting with 18-year-old Angel Haines. Haines' stepsister, 21-year-old Brittany Jeffers, joined the fight, followed by others, the chief said.
Jeffers died later at a hospital.
Four adults, including Haines, were indicted by a county grand jury Monday on charges of aggravated rioting. Four juveniles also face charges.
No one has been charged yet with Jeffers' death.
The adults will be arraigned Wednesday.
