LOVELAND, OH (FOX19) -

A man who police say murdered his stepfather, abducted a woman from a local college and led police on a chase in November, now has a bond set at $1 million.

Nathan Parsons, 29, of Williamsburg, OH is accused of murdering his stepfather by strangling him and then kidnapping his ex-girlfriend. He was indicted on three counts of Aggravated Murder, Aggravated Robbery, Kidnapping and Failure to Comply with the Order or Signal of a Police Officer. If convicted, Parsons could face the death penalty.

Parsons is accused of killing his stepfather, Richard Parsons, 69, on November 15th. The next day, police say Parsons kidnapped his ex-girlfriend Cassie Crawford from the parking lot of the southern campus of Southern State Community College in Brown County. Police were able to catch Parsons following a short chase in Adams County.

Parsons was interviewed by Goshen Township Police while in the Brown County Jail and confessed to the murder and theft of property.

Investigators believe the motive in the offense was robbery. After committing the murder, Nathan Parsons stole several household items and credit cards from the scene and his step father's pickup truck.

Parsons' pre-trial hearing is set for December 16.
