CINCINNATI (AP) - A man charged with killing his estranged girlfriend’s son in Kentucky has been jailed on an aggravated murder charge after the woman’s body was found in his car on an Ohio highway, authorities said Wednesday.

Terry Froman, 41, of Brookport, Illinois, was captured Friday on Interstate 75 in Warren County, Ohio, north of Cincinnati, authorities in Ohio and Kentucky say. Froman was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and 34-year-old Kim Thomas’ body was found in his car, authorities say.

The search for Froman began after Thomas’ 17-year-old son, Michael Mohney, was found dead at his mother’s Mayfield, Kentucky, home Friday and she was missing.

Froman is charged in Kentucky with murder and kidnapping, said Kentucky’s Graves County Commonwealth’s Attorney David Hargrove.

Froman was released from a hospital Tuesday and jailed in Warren County on the Ohio charge. Court records don’t list an attorney for him.

Hargrove and Warrant County Prosecutor David Fornshell said Wednesday that they have been in contact with each other and will work together to decide how to proceed with the case.

Kentucky authorities have said they believe that Mohney was killed trying to protect his mother from Froman and that Froman then abducted Thomas.
