ORRVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a northeast Ohio man confessed to fatally shooting a woman as she sat behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle with their young children in the backseat.

Orrville police say 22-year-old LaReece Woods was arrested after 24-year-old Emily Young was shot multiple times from close range Thursday night. The Spencer woman had two children with Woods, who’s from Orrville, 50 miles south of Cleveland.

Young was pronounced dead at a hospital. A front-seat passenger and the children in the vehicle weren’t injured.

Police say Woods confessed and told officers where they could find the gun. Woods has been charged with murder. A Wayne County Municipal Court judge on Friday set a $1 million bond.

Young’s newly assigned public defender didn’t return telephone messages.
