The man accused of fatally shooting the mother of his 10-month-old son and abducting her stepmother and the little boy will be in court Thursday and is facing multiple counts.
27-year-old James Ramey, of Toledo, Ohio was arrested after being found in northern Indiana, near Rochester last month. The child and stepmother weren't hurt.
Officials says the Amber Alert issued for baby Winston helped them catch Ramey.
Authorities say he broke into the family's house in Delta on March 14 and shot 23-year-old Amanda Mangas in the chest. She later died at a hospital.
Prosecutors in Ohio's Fulton County said Wednesday they will seek a death sentence after Ramey was indicted on 22 counts, including aggravated murder.
Ramey has been held at the Community Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio since he was arrested and brought back to Ohio. He will be in Fulton County Common Pleas Court Thursday.
