CLEVELAND-- Charges have been filed against the suspect accused in the murders of five people in a Cleveland home.
James E. Sparks Henderson, 19, was charged Thursday with five counts of aggravated murder. Investigators are going to a grand jury to pursue weapons charges against Henderson. Due to prior offenses, he was not allowed to have a gun.
