A new court date has been set to determine if an Ohio teen charged in a deadly Craigslist robbery scheme should be tried as an adult.

Brogan Rafferty, of Akron, faces juvenile charges of aggravated murder, complicity to aggravated murder, attempted murder and complicity to attempted murder in the death of one man and the shooting of another.

The assignment commissioner of Noble County Probate Court scheduled a Dec. 15 hearing for the 16-year-old Rafferty.

Rafferty appeared briefly in court earlier this week but the hearing was postponed because his father, who wasn't present, hadn't received proper notice of new charges filed last week.

Authorities say the teenager was involved in a scheme in which applicants answering a phony Craigslist ad for farm work were robbed, then killed.
