Area authorities arrest two men in connection to the murder of a Cleveland man last year.

Noble County Sheriff Landon T. Smith confirms the arrest of Peter Ligas III and Howard Kirk.

Ligas is charged with aggravated murder and Kirk is charged with complicity to murder in connection to the death of Rober Mancini.

Mancini was found dead on Rt. 146 in Center Township in Noble County.
