Two Columbus-area men were arraigned in Madison County Common Pleas Court on Friday, charged with dealing heroin in the vicinity of a Columbus school.

Dayib’s co-defendant, Charles Reed III, 21, 617 S. Ogden Ave., Columbus, is charged with selling the drug on Feb. 6 and Feb. 7 in the same place.
Judge Robert D. Nichols appointed Thomas Arrington to represent Dayib at an April 29 trial and ordered the man held on a $5,000 surety bond. Mike Murray was appointed to represent Reed on the same day.
