Kettering murder case: 3 to testify about Fairmont teen’s killing

Three people believed to be in the car driven by a Fairmont High School student last year when he was fatally shot are being ordered to testify against the 17-year-old facing murder charges in adult court.

Subpoenas have been issued for one teenage male and two teen females who court witnesses have said were in Ronnie Bowers’ car when the 16-year-old was shot while fleeing a confrontation on Willowdale Avenue Sept. 4, 2016, shortly after AlterFest.

Kylen Gregory of Kettering faces murder charges in the holiday weekend shooting of Bowers, whose death two days later from a gunshot wound to the head was ruled a homicide, Montgomery County Coroner’s Office staff have testified.

Kettering’s first gun-related homicide since 2007 resulted in Gregory being indicted in August on two counts of murder, four counts of felonious assault with a deadly weapon and two related charges, court records show.

The next court date is set for Dec. 28, when the subpoenaed Kettering teens who were with Bowers are scheduled to testify, court records show.

Gregory is being held in Montgomery County juvenile detention on a $1 million bond.
