The latest on the slaying of a central Ohio policeman (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

A man whose ex-girlfriend told police he left her house "looking to kill a cop" has been indicted in the fatal shooting of an Ohio officer.

The Knox County prosecutor said Monday that 32-year-old Herschel Ray Jones III has been indicted on 10 charges, including aggravated murder with a death specification. That means prosecutors will seek the death penalty if he's convicted.

Jones has been jailed, and it's not clear if he has an attorney.

The body of 34-year-old Danville Officer Thomas Cottrell was found behind the village's municipal building late on Jan. 17, shortly after Jones' ex-girlfriend called and warned police. She said Jones had threatened her and was armed.

The village is about 50 miles northeast of Columbus.

Prosecutors say they plan to discuss developments in the case of an Ohio village police officer gunned down earlier this month.

The Knox County Prosecutor's Office is planning a news conference Monday in Mount Vernon to talk about the shooting.

The body of 34-year-old Danville Officer Thomas Cottrell was found behind the village municipal building late on Jan. 17. He'd been shot in the head.

Thirty-two-year-old Herschel Ray Jones III is expected to be charged. About 10 minutes before Cottrell's body was discovered, Jones' ex-girlfriend called police to say Jones was armed and left her house "looking to kill a cop."
