CIRCLEVILLE – Trevor A. Teets, 20, of Circleville, was indicted by the Pickaway County Grand Jury on Feb. 6 in the shooting death of Alicia M. Pentecost-Salyers at his apartment on Caroline Court in the city.

Teets was indicted on charges of murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter and domestic violence and faces a maximum of 15 years to life in prison if convicted.

He is currently being held on $2 million bond in the Pickaway County Jail following an initial hearing Feb. 3 in Circleville Municipal Court. His case was set for a preliminary hearing Monday, but that hearing was cancelled upon the indictment.

He is now expected to be arraigned on the felony charges Wednesday in Pickaway County Common Pleas Court.
