LIMA — One man is dead and a male relative was in custody Monday afternoon following what Allen County Sheriff Matt Treglia termed a “suspected murder” that occurred just south of Lima earlier in the day.
Treglia said the county dispatch center received a 911 emergency call at approximately 11:06 a.m. Monday in reference to an individual who had been severely injured. Deputies, along with personnel from the Perry Township EMS, responded to a home at 311 E. 14th Street, and a male was pronounced dead at the scene. The manner of death was not immediately revealed.
The sheriff said one male — reportedly a family member of the deceased man — was taken into custody at the scene and was being questioned by detectives Monday afternoon.
