MANCHESTER (KWWL) -
Either Thursday evening or Friday morning, somebody allegedly signed onto the Facebook account of Manchester teenager Isaiah Sweet. According to Delaware County sheriff John LeClere, posts on Sweet's page said he was out of jail and was going to party.
Sweet is charged with two counts of first degree murder in the May 11 death of his grandparents, Rick and Janet Sweet. Sweet was 17 at the time.
LeClere confirmed, however, that Sweet is still in the Delaware County jail. He said the posts were possibly the result of hacking and Sweet is still incarcerated.
According to the Delaware County attorney's office, Sweet's trial is set for April 17.
20-year-old Brandon Ahlers also faces charges in connection with the deaths. The county attorney is charging him with two counts of aiding and abetting murder in the first degree. His trial is set for March 6.
