LIMA — Three men charged in the killing of a man last week waived preliminary hearings Wednesday and had their cases sent to the grand jury.
Gavin R. Lauck, 19, is charged as the shooter with murder. Shawnee Township Police Chief Mike Keith said Lauck used a rifle to shoot and kill 20-year-old Damere Oliphant on March 27, outside an apartment off Shawnee Road near a closed Taco Bell restaurant.
Lauck told the magistrate he wanted to have the hearing even though his attorney said they would waive it. Lauck said he wanted to have the hearing if his co-defendants were going to testify but when the prosecutor said they would not be called, Lauck waived the hearing.
