CIRCLEVILLE - Trevor A. Teets is being held on $2 million bond for the murder of Alicia M. Pentecost-Salyers following his initial hearing Tuesday in Circleville Municipal Court.

Emotions ran high for both families in the courtroom as Teets appeared through a video link from the Pickaway County Jail.

Represented by attorney Jo Kaiser, Teets requested a preliminary hearing on the felony charges of murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter, as well as a misdemeanor count of domestic violence.

The hearing was set for 11:30 a.m. Feb. 9 in Circleville Municipal Court.

If convicted of the murder charge, Teets faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in prison.

Teets, 20, is accused in the shooting death of Salyers, 19, with whom he had a relationship. Salyers was declared dead at the scene of the shooting at 129 Caroline Court, Circleville, shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday.

Jayme Fountain, assistant Pickaway County Prosecutor, said the case is still an open investigation, and no additional details could be released at this time.
