OTTAWA, Ohio (AP) — Autopsies have been completed on two teenage brothers who were reported missing in northwest Ohio this week and found dead after a third teen directed authorities to their bodies.

Authorities aren't releasing the results as they continue their investigation and weigh whether to file more charges against a teen who pleaded not guilty to a grand theft auto charge Friday in juvenile court.

The two who were found dead— 14-year-old Blaine Romes and 17-year-old Blake Romes — lived together with the third teen and their mothers inside a trailer home in Ottawa, a small village about 100 miles northwest of Columbus, neighbors said.

The teens had been the subjects of an Amber Alert issued Thursday morning after a mother returned to the home and found a crime scene, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said. A car was also reported missing from the trailer park.

The Associated Press previously identified the third teen, also a 17-year-old boy, but now is withholding his name because he has been charged as a juvenile.

Prosecutors said Friday they anticipate filing additional charges, which they didn't specify, as they worked on building their case.
