Bond set at $1M for Ohioan charged in pizza driver's slaying after leading authorities to body


CAMBRIDGE, Ohio — An eastern Ohio man accused of killing a pizza delivery driver is being held on $1 million bond.

A judge set bond for 32-year-old Adam Charles Burris at his video arraignment Monday in municipal court in Cambridge, roughly 80 miles east of Columbus.

The Daily Jeffersonian newspaper reports the hearing was continued until Thursday so that the Cambridge man could talk with an attorney. None appeared for him in court.

Burris is charged with murder in the slaying of 26-year-old Kayla Thompson, also of Cambridge. Authorities in Guernsey County say she didn’t return from a delivery to Burris’ home last Thursday.

The sheriff says Burris was later taken into custody and led authorities to Thompson’s body near a boat ramp at Dillon State Park in neighboring Muskingum County.
