Kaleb Marshall Tooson, 18, of Liberty Twp. was charged with murder, felonious assault and aggravated robbery for the death of Milton. He is being held in the Butler County Jail in lieu of $1 million bond awaiting trial.
The incident happened at about 5:23 a.m. when a group met at Liberty Park in what investigators say was a plan for a vehicle theft. Detectives say Milton was “lured” to the location to be robbed. A fight ensued, and Milton was shot and killed on a nearby street, officials said.
Milton, 25, of Cincinnati, was found dead in the 6000 block of Spruce Creek Drive. The suspects drove away in Milton’s purple Camaro that was later ditched in West Chester Twp.
A 14-year-old girl, who is a Lakota East student, was arrested on charges of complicity to aggravated robbery, complicity to murder and tampering with evidence. On Thursday, prosecutors withdrew the complicity charges and she entered a “true” plea to tampering with evidence in Butler County Juvenile Court.
Judge Kathleen Romans ordered she remain housed in the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center until sentencing on July 20.
