Ex-Findlay man charged in Newark in boy s death

NEWARK, Ohio A former Findlay man charged with killing his 3-year-old stepson is to be arraigned Monday in Licking County Common Pleas Court.

Corey S. Flugga, 22, of Newark was indicted by a Licking County grand jury Monday on two counts of murder stemming from the June 21 death of Carson Hanson. An autopsy showed young Hanson died from blunt-force trauma to the abdomen.

Mr. Flugga, who was caring for the child while his wife was at work, was arrested for the slaying two days later in Findlay where he and his wife had gone to make funeral arrangements. Police said the couple had moved to Newark from Findlay in February.
