A typical Fourth of July usually has lots of flags, fireworks and parades. But this year is anything but typical as the pandemic has benched marching bands, banned floats, and sidelined spectators.

In Montgomery, Ohio — a small suburban Cincinnati community of about 10,000 where lawns are lush green and American flags abound — the annual Fourth of July parade is a long tradition. So when the pandemic threatened to cancel the annual parade, they decided to retool it.

Four people are under arrest more than two years after a gruesome incident in Pike County, Ohio, in which eight members of the same family were killed.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says four members of the Wagner family were taken into custody Tuesday in the shooting deaths of eight members of the Rhoden family on April 22, 2016.

The four are charged with planning and carrying out the killings are: George "Billy" Wagner III, 47, Angela Wagner, 48, George Wagner IV, 27, and Edward "Jake" Wagner, 26.
