Boy Shot on Lawn

An Ohio man accused of fatally shooting a neighbor who walked on his lawn has been charged with aggravated murder.

A grand jury has indicted 66 year old Charles Martin in the death of 15 year old Larry Mugrage.

Martin could face life in prison if convicted.

Martin told officers he'd had several disputes with his neighbors about their walking on his grass.

Officers said Martin fired two blasts from his shotgun, hitting the teen in the chest.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Martin called 911 to report what he had done.

He told the dispatcher that the boy has been, quote, "Making the other kids harass me and my place, tearing things up."
