IRONTON, OH (AP) — A man suspected in the deadly Ohio shootings of a 7-year-old boy and three other relatives and a related non-fatal stabbing has been indicted on charges including aggravated murder and attempted murder.

Twenty-three-year-old Arron Lawson was arrested Oct. 13 after a manhunt near Ironton, just south of where authorities found the bodies in a house trailer.

A Lawrence County grand jury on Wednesday also indicted Lawson on charges of felonious assault, rape, kidnapping, corpse abuse, aggravated burglary, vehicle theft, tampering with evidence and failing to comply with a police officer’s order.

Lawson’s attorney hasn’t responded to a message seeking comment on the potential death penalty case.

Lawson is suspected of killing an adult relative, her mother and stepfather and her son and of wounding her husband.
