The Putnam County teen accused of killing two brothers has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and abuse of a corpse.

Michael Aaron Fay, 17, was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday on adult murder charges in the slayings of 14-year-old Blaine Romes and his brother, Blake, 17.

The brothers' bodies were recovered after Fay had notified authorities of their location. An

Amber Alert was issued

for the three teens when Romes' mother returned home to a bloody crime scene.

Fay is accused of killing the siblings at the Ottawa mobile home he and his mother were sharing with the brothers and their mother.

Fay is being held on $5 million bond. He is being held at a juvenile detention center in Bowling Green.
