Teen faces adult charges for relative’s murder

Teen murder suspect.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) -The teen murder suspect who escaped from a Springfield hospital can be tried as an adult.

Deputies say Raymond Zimmerman, 17, escaped while getting treatment at Springfield Regional Medical Center late last month.

He was in custody for the murder of a family member, William Henson.

Zimmerman was caught in Fairborn after he kidnapped an elderly woman. She was not hurt.

Zimmerman will be tried as an adult for the murder charge.

A judge has yet to rule if he will be tried as an adult for kidnapping, escape and other charges.
