911 call: slain Ohio attorney feared attack

NEW FRANKLIN, Ohio (AP) — A 911 call about the killings of a prominent attorney and his wife in northeast Ohio indicates they had feared retaliation because their daughter earlier had been stabbed and had identified her attackers.

WEWS-TV (http://bit.ly/12QBvFu) reported Thursday that a 911 caller who discovered the bodies told a dispatcher that victim Jeffrey Schobert had said he feared something bad might happen because of the identification made by their daughter.

Police say Schobert and his wife, Margaret Schobert, of New Franklin were beaten with a sledgehammer at their home.

Two teenagers, ages 14 and 18, have been charged in the Schoberts' deaths.

Police say the older suspect had dated the couple's teenage daughter. He also has been charged with stabbing the girl, who was at a hospital when her parents were killed.
