BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A man who is accused of killing his stepfather and abducting a woman in Brown County was arraigned in court Friday.

Nathan Parsons, 29, of Williamsburg, is charged with abduction and failure to comply after police say he abducted his ex-girlfriend from Southern State Community College on Wednesday, then led police on a chase. He appeared via video arraignment in Brown County and had his bond set at $500,000.

Parsons is also facing murder and aggravated robbery charges in Clermont County for killing his stepfather, Richard Parsons, then taking his credit cards, pick up truck and other personal items.

"(He) needed some money and his purpose for going there was to acquire some valuables that he could pawn or sell for cash," said Ray Snyder with Goshen Township Police.

Police say he used the stolen truck in the abduction. Investigators say the woman was thrown into the back of the pick-up, which is equipped with a locking bed cover, and during that ordeal the woman was able to call for help.

"He had some unfinished business with her that he wanted to discuss with her," said Snyder.

Police were able to locate the stolen pick up through the victim's cell phone, and after a brief chase, Parsons was captured in Adams County.

Parsons is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday morning.
