A Circleville man has been ordered jailed without bond in Hocking County in the death of an 85-year-old woman. Also charged is the woman's grandson. He's accused of setting her up for the robbery that led to her death. The body of Wretha Poling was found in the root cellar of her home in Laurelville on May 13th, 2001. She had been bound, beaten and shot to death. 30-year-old Daniel Spencer is charged with aggravated murder and six other counts in connection with the woman's death. Her grandson, 31-year-old Troy Estep, of Circleville, is charged with complicity to aggravated robbery and complicity to aggravated burglary. Estep's bond has been set at $300,000. Preliminary hearings are scheduled next Thursday for both men in Hocking County Municipal Court.
