“Justice was served and it’s always good to get a kilo-level dealer off the streets,” Clark County Assistant Prosecutor Ryan Saunders said. 

The case started when police executed a search warrant at a home on West Parkwood Avenue in Springfield, Saunders said. He said $3,000, a gun, and cocaine were found in the house. More money, scales and drugs were also found in an SUV.

16-year-old charged in Middletown murder to remain behind bars

16-year-old appears in Butler County Juvenile court charged with aggravated murder

A 16-year-old Middletown boy accused of fatally shooting a Loveland man Friday night will stay behind bars in the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center.

The teen was arraigned today in juvenile court on charges of aggravated murder and aggravated robbery, and Magistrate Patricia Wilkerson ordered the boy to remain behind bars.

FIRST REPORT: Middletown boy, 16, charged with murder after drug deal ‘gone wrong’ 

The 16-year-old is charged with shooting and killing Stephan Cotter, 22, of Loveland, on Friday night in what police said was a drug deal gone bad.

The teen sat alone at the table while charges against him were read, which also included tampering with evidence for allegedly throwing the gun used in the shooting in the river, and a burglary charge for a previous incident on Yankee Road. In addition, he is charged with a probation violation and was a runaway at the time of shooting.

When the magistrate asked the teen if he understood the charges, he answered “Yeah.”

The teen’s family members were in court, but made no comments.

A hearing before Judge Ronald Craft has been scheduled for Dec. 21.

At about 6:30 p.m. Friday, Middletown police were called to the area of Lawn Avenue on a report of a shooting. They found Cotter slumped over and unconscious in the passenger seat of a 2012 Kia, according to a police report. Cotter was shot in the chest area.

Cotter was transported to Miami Valley Hospital, where he died, according to Middletown Police Lt. Scott Reeve.

Friday night’s shooting was the city’s ninth homicide of the year, according to police.
