COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A manhunt has ended in Ohio for a suspect in the shooting deaths of four people including a 7-year-old boy.
23-year-old Aaron Lawson is now in custody, charged with three counts of murder and one count of aggravated murder.
Lawrence County sheriff's deputies found the bodies of three adults inside a house trailer Wednesday evening. While at the scene, they were told that a 7-year-old boy also lived there and had not been seen.
Authorities issued a missing-child alert and spent hours searching for Devin Holston only to find the child dead inside the same house trailer, his body apparently hidden.
Lawrence County Sheriff Jeffery Lawless says a fourth adult who came upon the crime scene after work was stabbed there and fled to seek help.
