CHARDON, Ohio — Three men were indicted Wednesday on aggravated murder charges for a contract killing nine years ago in which the hit man went to the wrong house and killed a man with the same name as the intended target, Ohio authorities said.

The men were arrested June 1 on conspiracy and aggravated murder charges and are in custody just east of Cleveland in Geauga County.

The indicted men are 59-year-old Joseph Rosebrook of Saint Cloud, Florida; 57-year-old Carl Rosebrook of East Liberty, Ohio; and 45-year-old Chad South of Moraine, Ohio.

Geauga County Sheriff Dan McClelland said Joseph Rosebrook hired Chad South to kill a Daniel Ott whose cooperation had forced Rosebrook to plead guilty to a conspiracy charge in central Ohio and accept a 10-year sentence.

He said the hired man broke into a home in northeast Ohio and, after a struggle, killed 31-year-old Daniel Ott with a shotgun. But it was the wrong house and the wrong Daniel Ott.
