Official: Ohio teen in Craigslist case seemed calm

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A school official says an Ohio teen charged in a deadly scheme to lure victims with phony Craigslist job offers seemed calm and nonchalant after authorities interviewed him about the deaths.

The (Canton) Repository reports that suspect Brogan Rafferty's former high school assistant principal testified Friday that Rafferty described himself after last year's interview at his high school as "cold blooded."

The school official testified one day after jurors heard Rafferty on tape saying he was "ordered" to dig a grave for one of the men he is charged with killing along with 53-year-old mentor Richard Beasley. A fourth victim was shot and injured but escaped.

The prosecution wrapped up its case against the 17-year-old in an Akron court Friday. The defense is to begin presenting its case Monday.
