A neighbor has been arrested in the killing of a 9-year-old Ohio girl whose body was found in a trash bin near her home.
The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Jerrod Metsker was arrested on a murder charge early Sunday afternoon.
Sheriff Travis Hutchinson wouldn't say how Reann
Murphy was killed or offer a motive. He described Metsker as a family
friend and neighbor.
Reann was last seen Saturday night playing outdoors
at the mobile home park where she lived in Smithville, about 30 miles
southwest of Akron.
Deputies found her body in a trash bin at 1:30 a.m. Sunday, about five hours after she was reported missing.
It's unclear whether Metsker yet has an attorney. His first court appearance is set for Monday morning.
