Charles Cobler arrived in
handcuffs at the Franklin County jail
from Ohio this afternoon.

Later a judge charged him with
murder, however the suspect was
extradited back to the county on less
serious charges.


One of those charges included
felony theft for failing to pay for
fuel in Henry County when he was
gassing up his car.

Investigators say the gas station
was most likely Cobler's last stop
before fleeing to Ohio.

*CG locator Hamilton, OH

65 year old Jonathan Utin was
indicted by a Montgomery County grand

jury on 10 counts of statutory rape of
a 12 year old girl.

Utin taught math and science for
35 years at Blacksburg Middle School
before retiring.


The indictment alleges that the
abuse happened between June 1st 1970
and March 31st 1971.

The victim would now be 48 years
old.

Utin pleaded guilty last month in
Ohio to raping another 12 year old
girl.

He will be sentenced next week.

Commonwealth's Attorney Brad
Finch says he will bring Utin back to
Virginia as soon as possible.

second time back.

We first met Spradlin back in

just long enough to see his newborn

This time, his wife and two
children flew back into Roanoke by his
