"MAYFIELD, KY — A Kentucky teenager was killed while trying to protect his mother from her estranged boyfriend, and the woman was abducted and later found dead in Ohio during a multistate police search, a sheriff said Friday.
"The suspect, Terry Froman, 41, of Brookport, Illinois, was taken into custody in the Cincinnati area and faced murder and kidnapping charges back in Kentucky, said Dewayne Redmon, the Graves County sheriff in western Kentucky.
"Froman suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was taken to a hospital for treatment, he said.
"Froman's vehicle was stopped along Interstate 75 by Ohio authorities, who found 34-year-old Kim Thomas dead inside, the sheriff said.
"Earlier Friday, authorities found the body of her 17-year-old son, Michael E. Mohney, in the living room of his mother's home in Mayfield, Kentucky, while checking on Thomas after she failed to report to work, Redmon said. There were signs of a struggle, he said.
"`What we believe, apparently the son intervened and tried to protect his mother, and it cost him his life,` the sheriff said.
"The teenager suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and an autopsy was scheduled, said Graves County Coroner Phillip McClain."
