LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) – The man who sparked a two state manhunt faces the death penalty in Ohio and Kentucky.
Terry Froman, 41, now faces two counts of aggravated murder and two counts of kidnapping. He is accused of killing a teenager in Kentucky, then killing the teen’s mother, Kim Thomas, 34, along Interstate 75 in Warren County.
Police found Thomas in Froman’s car on I-75 near Monroe on September 12. The prosecutor says forensics show that Thomas was alive when they entered Ohio that day. She was shot multiple times and killed in Warren County. They say Froman also shot himself, but was not seriously hurt.
Thomas’s family was there when the announcement was made. They say they are appreciative of the speed to prosecute the case.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell says he will face charges first in Ohio, then in Kentucky.
Froman is being held in jail on a $1-million bond.
