BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio sheriff says a man being questioned in West Virginia about a missing couple in their 80s has not provided new information into their disappearance.
Samuel K. Littleton II was arrested Wednesday in Princeton, W.Va., where the car belonging to Richard and Gladis Russell of Bellefontaine, Ohio, was found a day earlier.
The Dayton Daily News in Ohio quotes Logan County Sheriff Andrew Smith as saying the car will be examined for clues Friday at the Ohio crime lab. Police have said there was blood inside the car and trunk.
Littleton is charged in the stabbing death of his girlfriend's 26-year-old daughter, whose body was found in his basement in Bellefontaine. At a hearing in West Virginia on Thursday, he refused to return to Ohio to face prosecution.
