A teenager who pointed Ohio authorities to the bodies of two dead brothers who had been reported missing has now been charged in their deaths.

A prosecutor in northwest Ohio says the 17-year-old is charged with delinquency in connection with aggravated murder.

The Associated Press previously identified the teen but now is withholding his name because he has been charged as a juvenile.

The brothers' bodies were found hours after they were reported missing May 9.

All three teenagers had been named in an Amber Alert last week after the mother of the two brothers returned to a Putnam County trailer home and found a gun and blood.

The 17-year-old was later found with a missing car in Columbus, about 120 miles southeast of his hometown of Ottawa.
