CINCINNATI -- The Ohio Supreme Court granted a stay of execution Wednesday for a man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend on the side of Interstate 75 in Warren County.
Terry Froman kidnapped the victim, Kim Thomas, from her Mayfield, Kentucky home in September 2014. He led police on a chase before violently beating Thomas and shooting her four times.
Froman was convicted on charges of aggravated murder and kidnapping earlier this year. A Warren County judge accepted the jury's recommendation of a death penalty.
Froman's attorney filed an appeal and requested the stay of execution last month. The Supreme Court's decision to grant the stay means that no execution date will be set while the appeal is pending.
He's also accused of killing Thomas' 17-year-old son, Michael "Eli" Mohney in the Mayfield home before he kidnapped Thomas.
