SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - A teenager accused in the fatal shooting of his uncle has been indicted in adult court on charges including aggravated murder in western Ohio.

A Clark County grand jury indicted 17-year-old Raymond Zimmerman on Monday in the Jan. 14 slaying and robbery of 70-year-old William Henson. Assistant Prosecutor Megan Farley says the indictment also charges Zimmerman with murder, felony murder, felonious assault, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and firearm theft.

A message was left Tuesday for Zimmerman’s attorney.

Authorities say Henson was shot at his Clark County home and robbed of firearms and ammunition. An 18-year-old man also is charged.

Zimmerman also is charged with juvenile counts including escape and kidnapping. Authorities say he fled Jan. 23 from a hospital where he was transferred for an injury they believe was faked.
