LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - A grand jury will hear the case of a man accused of killing his estranged girlfriend's son in Kentucky, kidnapping her and then killing her on an Ohio highway.

In a hearing Monday, Lebanon Municipal Court Judge Mark Bogen said there's enough evidence for the case of 41-year-old Terry Froman to go to a Warren County grand jury to determine charges.

A message was left for Froman's attorney.

Froman, of Brookport, Illinois, was taken into custody Sept. 12 on Interstate 75 in Warren County, Ohio. Authorities say he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound and 34-year-old Kim Thomas' body was in his car.

Authorities in Graves County, Kentucky say Froman is charged with murder there in the slaying of Thomas' teenage son and with kidnapping Thomas from her Mayfield, Kentucky, home.
