Sheriff: OH man charged in pizza deliverer's death

NASHPORT, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say a 32-year-old man has been charged with murder in the slaying of a pizza delivery driver whose body was found in an eastern Ohio state park.

Guernsey County Sheriff Michael McCauley said Friday that Adam Charles Burris is believed to have abducted and killed 26-year-old Kayla Thompson, who didn't return from a delivery run Thursday.

Burris was initially held on an unrelated domestic violence warrant. No attorney information was available.

McCauley said Burris led authorities to Thompson's body near a boat ramp at Dillon State Park in Muskingum County, about 65 miles east of Columbus.

Deputies used Burris' cellphone to track and stop him on Interstate 70 after he was reported to be driving the pizza delivery vehicle Thursday.

A bond hearing for Burris is planned for Monday.
