A case has been bound over to a Hamilton County grand jury involving two teens who allegedly lured a man to a home on Frazier Drive with an offer to trade sex for drugs, then shot him to death.
Peyton Hogan, 21, was found Nov. 13 bleeding from a gunshot wound to his chest outside a home in the 400 block of Frazier Drive.
Matt Mcallister, a former firefighter, told police he was awakened by a woman pounding on his door who asked him to call 911 before she ran up the street. He said he followed her and found the victim lying on his back next to a pickup truck.
Police arrived less than a minute later, but the victim died shortly thereafter at Erlanger hospital.
Shaina Hughes, 18, and Quincy Goodine, 19, were arrested, and General Sessions Judge Clarence Shattuck bound the case over on Friday.
Two witnesses, Joshua Santana and Detective Matthew Puglise, testified Friday. The prosecution also entered evidence from the victim's Facebook page showing Hughes sent Hogan a picture of herself, and he sent her pictures of methamphetamine.
According to arrest records, investigators spoke to witnesses who identified Goodine as the gunman.
Investigators said Hughes told them she was in the basement when Hogan was shot. She said she heard the shot and looked up to see Goodine with a gun in his hand.
Hughes also said the victim was unarmed and had not threatened anyone.
Another witness said she was upstairs when the shooting occurred and that Hughes had lured Hogan in by promising sex for drugs and money.
Santana told investigators he saw Goodine step out from behind some stairs holding a .25 caliber automatic pistol and order Hogan to give him "everything he had." He said Goodine shot Hogan once.
He also testified Goodine and Hughes plotted together to devise the sex-for-drugs lure for Hogan.
Investigators found one spent .25 auto shell casing at the scene, as well as a pistol hidden downstairs. They also found an undisclosed amount and type of what they believed to be narcotics on Hogan.
