BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - A Goshen Township man has been indicted by a Clermont County Grand Jury with a felony murder charge in connection with the death of a 3-year-old girl.

Samuel Lee Johnson, 32, was arrested last Friday and charged in connection with the death of a 3-year-old girl, who was found dead in her family's mobile home at the end of January. He was charged with felony murder along with a second degree child endangering charge.

He was also indicted on seven different drug charges.

The child's mother, Erin Pappas, has been indicted on drug charges. Johnson had been dating Pappas, but is not the child's father.

Johnson is being held in the Clermont County Jail on a million dollar bond.
