LIMA — Ross McWay no longer was smiling as he pleaded not guilty Wednesday to aggravated murder, a charge that could send him to prison for the rest of his life.
McWay, 37, also is charged with a repeat violent offender specification for his 2002 conviction of voluntary manslaughter for killing a man. That specification carries an additional 10 years in prison.
He was being held in the Putnam County jail for an undisclosed reason in lieu of $2.5 million bail. Judge Jeffrey Reed appointed an attorney to represent McWay after he told the judge he didn’t have the money to hire an attorney.
