A Jackson County man has been indicted on several charges in connection to a kidnapping of a 6-year old girl in July.
Zachary Dunn, 30, of Jackson County was indicted Thursday by a grand jury on three counts of kidnapping, two counts of abduction and four assault charges. The kidnapping charges specify the suspect is a violent predator and committed the offenses with assault as the motivation, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said.
On July 26, a 6-year old girl was reported missing from the Liberty township. Crews searched for the girl for 14 hours before she was found six miles away from home. Dunn was arrested later that night.
"The defendant grabbed the young victim from her home and terrorized her until she managed to get away," DeWine said. "The victim is a brave little girl, and we plan to do all we can to get justice."
Dunn will be arraigned on the charges Friday morning in the Jackson County Courthouse. If convicted of all charges, Dunn could face a maximum of life in prison without parole.
