WARREN COUNTY, Ohio -- A Warren County judge has accepted the jury’s recommendation and has sentenced Terry Froman to receive the death penalty, The Journal-News reported.
Formal sentencing was Thursday afternoon for Terry Froman, the man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend while driving north on Interstate 75.
A Warren County jury earlier this month recommended that Froman should receive the death penalty for fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend Kim Thomas in 2014 as he drove up Interstate 75 near Middletown.
The jury found Froman guilty of aggravated murder and kidnapping.
Froman is also accused of first killing Thomas’ son at his Kentucky home before kidnapping Thomas and eventually killing her.
The Warren County jury reached its decision after about 2.5 hours of deliberations.
Froman’s 16-year-old daughter ran from the courtroom, sobbing, after the jury’s decision was read. However, Froman and the family of Kim Thomas showed little emotion as the sentence was read.
