DAYTON Authorities in Ohio have arrested a man in the shooting death of a woman whose 4-year son was abducted by the gunman and left unharmed at a highway rest area.
Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer says that 22-year-old Charlie W. Myers of Columbus was taken into custody.
Plummer said Monday that Myers confessed to involvement in the case.
The boy, Willliam Nelson, was discovered at a central Ohio rest stop Friday by travelers from Maryland. Authorities say the boy told them a strange man had shot his mother. They used details the little boy provided and found his 29-year-old mother Jennifer Nelson dead in her home in Dayton.
