Tiffin man pleads guilty in woman’s fatal beating

FINDLAY — A 22-year-old Tiffin man accused of beating a woman to death pleaded guilty Friday in Hancock County Municipal Court.

Daniel Bixler of 84 Miami St. is charged with the March 26 aggravated murder of Vera Jo Reigle, 24, of Fostoria. He pleaded guilty to four other charges, including two counts of kidnapping, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence, court records show.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on March 28.

Train operators found Ms. Reigle’s body on the tracks of a CSX trestle bridge over the Blanchard River, near the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., bridge in March. An autopsy showed that the mother of one young child had multiple blunt and sharp trauma wounds on her body.
