CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- A central Ohio man and two other adults charged with aggravated burglary and theft after the slaying of his grandfather are being held on $2 million bond each.
 
The Circleville Herald  reports the three have not been charged in last week's slaying of 84-year-old Thomas Whitson, though more charges are expected.
 
Investigators say they've recovered several firearms that were missing from Whitson's home in Orient when a neighbor found him dead Sunday. He was shot in the head.
 
The burglary suspects charged in Circleville Municipal Court are Whitson's grandson, 30-year-old Shaun Lawson of Columbus, 20-year-old Kyle Robinson of Columbus and 20-year-old Joshua Johnson of Grove City.
 
Court records list no attorneys for them.
 
Two 17-year-old suspects in the case are expected to be arraigned next week in juvenile court.
