Ohio Judge: Boy can testify about mom's slaying

A judge in Ohio will allow a grand jury to hear testimony from a 5-year-old boy who authorities say was kidnapped then abandoned by a man who killed the boy's mother.
Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge Barbara Gorman ruled Tuesday that the boy was competent to testify regarding charges against 22-year-old Charlie Myers of Columbus.
Myers is accused of aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and gross sexual imposition involving a child.
The boy was left at a highway rest area after his 29-year-old mother was shot to death Jan. 2 in their Dayton-area home. The Associated Press is not naming the family so as not to identify the victim of an alleged sexual offense.
