SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – A Clark County grand jury indicted Mark Edwards on three counts Tuesday.

Edwards, 44, is charged with violation of a protection order, failure to comply with a police offer, and interference with custody.

Edwards was arrested in Springfield, Ohio, Feb. 28 after prosecutors said he ran off with a 14-year-old, prompting a nationwide search.

He and the girl were taken into custody three days after they disappeared.

Edwards also faces charges of kidnapping and rape for a similar incident with the same girl in September 2013.

Edwards remains in the Clark County Jail on a $875,000 bond.
