Castro is accused of shooting and killing Joseph E. Kancy, 22, of Wilmington. Castro also allegedly altered documents and discarded objects so they couldn’t be used as evidence against him, according to the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.

Castro is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Warren County Common Pleas Court. He is being held in the Warren County Jail under a $500,000 cash bond.

Lebanon police said a caller to the Lebanon Communications Center reported about 7 p.m. June 5 that a person was bleeding in front of a home in the 900 block of North Broadway. When police arrived, they found Kancy’s body.

An autopsy of Kancy identified his cause of death as a single gunshot wound to the chest and manner of death to be homicide.

Castro was arrested June 18 at a home in Lebanon and booked into the Warren County Jail.

Police said no other information is available at this time.
