    Prosecutor: Hacked Facebook accounts, custody dispute led to Rhoden killings | NBC4 WCMH-TV
    Updated: Apr 22, 2021 / 05:39 PM EDT

    The Wagners were then questioned at the Canadian border, where more evidence was seized, including a laptop and the Wagners’ phones. Investigators say they found a screenshot on the confiscated laptop that showed the Wagners gained unauthorized access to the Facebook account of two people.

    The screen shots revealed a growing dispute over the custody of Jake Wagner and Hanna May Rhoden’s shared child. In one screenshot, Hanna May Rhoden told another person that she would never sign custody papers.

    That’s when investigators say Jake, George and Angela Wagner executed custody documents that designated Jake and Hanna’s daughter would go to Jake if Hanna were to die. The document was made to look like it was signed a year prior. According to prosecutors, it had a fake signature and unauthorized use of a notary stamp belonging to Angela Wagner’s mother, Rita Newcomb.

    Newcomb came forward when prosecutors said she felt she could not continue to lie for her daughter.

    For three months leading up to the killings, prosecutors say the Wagners purchased items in preparation. Items included brass catchers, ammunition, magazines, a phone jammer, and items for building silencers for different caliber weapons. The remains of a failed prototype silencer were found on the Wagners’ property.

    Jake Wagner recently sat down with prosecutors, where he led investigators to the weapons that were used in three of the killings, along with vehicles used during the offenses.

    Jacob Wagner: What a guilty plea means for others accused in Pike County massacre

    Jacob Wagner, the youngest of four family members charged, agreed to a plea deal in the brutal execution-like slaying of eight members of the Rhoden family, a case DeWine once called the biggest case in Ohio's Bureau of Criminal Investigation history.

    Five years to the day after eight members of the Rhoden family were found dead in 2016, 28-year-old Jake Wagner pleaded guilty to 23 counts -- including eight counts of aggravated murder for the killings of eight members of the Rhoden family in 2016.

    Jacob Wagner is charged alongside George “Billy” Wagner III; Angela Wagner; and George Wagner IV.

    The plea deal means Jacob Wagner will avoid the death penalty. As he apologized in court, his attorneys said he knows he will die in prison.

    Prosecutors say the deal also includes an agreement that will allow Angela Wagner, George "Billy" Wagner, and George Wagner IV to avoid the death penalty, but that means Jake Wagner will have to testify in each of their trials.
