Suspect in Ohio student’s killing indicted on new charges




WAUSEON, Ohio (AP) — A grand jury has indicted an Ohio man on new charges in the killing of a college student who disappeared while riding her bicycle.

The new charges announced Tuesday against 57-year-old James Worley include kidnapping, tampering with evidence and corpse abuse. He's also charged with abduction and aggravated murder.

Worley has been held without bond since authorities charged him with killing 20-year-old University of Toledo student Sierah Joughin (JAW'-gihn).

Joughin's body was found in a cornfield on July 22, three days after she was last seen bicycling just west of Toledo.

Worley's attorney has declined to comment since the arrest. A message was left with him Tuesday.

Worley spent three years in prison in the abduction of a woman in 1990 who was biking near Toledo.
