HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - A Kentucky man accused in the slaying of a great-grandmother found dead in the trunk of her car in 2012 in southwestern Ohio has been indicted on charges including aggravated murder.

Butler County’s prosecutor says 56-year-old Daniel French, of Berea, Kentucky, was indicted this month on charges that also include aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

The indictment was sealed until Wednesday to allow authorities to arrest French. He is being held by police in Berea.

Butler County plans to seek extradition to Ohio. It wasn’t immediately clear whether French has an attorney.

Authorities found the body of 87-year-old Barbara Howe, of Monroe, in her car at an apartment complex a few miles from the retirement village where she lived.
