COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A veteran Ohio trooper has been demoted for violating State Highway Patrol policies when he picked up two teenage murder suspects on a highway and gave them a ride to a truck stop where police say they shot and injured a man.

The 17- and 18-year-old teenagers picked up by the trooper on a Madison County ramp in July were wanted in the slaying of a Columbus convenience store clerk. The patrol says Jeff Shane broke agency rules by not patting down the teens for weapons and getting their names to check against outstanding warrants.

Authorities say the teens shot a man and stole his car shortly after they were dropped off.

Shane has been demoted from sergeant at the West Jefferson post to patrolling in Chillicothe (chihl-ih-KAWTH'-ee).
