Trial set for man charged in fatal highway shooting in Ohio


LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — An Illinois man charged with kidnapping a Kentucky woman and fatally shooting her last year along Interstate 75 in southwest Ohio is set for trial next year.

The Ohio trial of 41-year-old Terry Froman of Brookport, Illinois, is scheduled to start Feb. 22 in Lebanon. Froman has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated murder, kidnapping and discharging a firearm in the slaying of 34-year-old Kim Thomas of Mayfield, Kentucky.

Authorities allege Froman killed his estranged girlfriend’s 17-year-old son in Kentucky and then kidnapped and killed her along the highway about 30 miles north of Cincinnati. Froman was arrested Sept. 12.

His trial was set for August. But Warren County’s prosecutor says the defense wanted more time to review evidence.

Froman’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call Monday seeking comment.
