COLUMBUS, Ohio – It will be up to the Franklin County coroner to determine if the death of a man in an East Side home early Wednesday morning was a homicide.

UPDATE: The Franklin County Coroner has ruled this death a homicide. The cause of death is not being released at this time. This is the 11th homicide of 2014.
