GUERNSEY COUNTY, Ohio – The judge in the case of a Cambridge man who allegedly killed a 26-year-old pizza deliverer the day after Christmas made a distinct ruling in the case Thursday.
Guernsey County Common Pleas Judge David Ellwood has deemed Adam Burris competent to stand trial, based on an evaluation by a doctor.
Burris was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of aggravated murder with specifications and single counts of kidnapping, attempted rape, aggravated robbery and grand theft.
He remains behind bars on a $1 million bond with no 10 percent allowed.
Guernsey County sheriff Mike McCauley said Kayla Thompson, a 26-year-old pizza delivery driver working for Plus One Pizza in Cambridge, delivered an order to Burris' home on McPherson drive on Dec. 26.
Police said Thompson never left the house of her own free will.
A missing person’s alert was made public, and Burris' cell phone was pinged for a location.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol Cambridge Post stopped his vehicle on Interstate 70 eastbound and he was taken into custody.
Burris allegedly told investigators that he dumped Thompson's body at Dillon State Park near Zanesville in neighboring Muskingum County.
That’s where McCauley said her body was discovered.
Thompson was the mother of two small children.
