Seymour man charged in Jennings man's death
|A Jennings County man was the victim May 6 of an apparent murder at an apartment on Bent Tree Lane in Seymour. |
Ryan Joseph Ross, 28, died of gunshot woulds, according to a news release from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
Ross had knocked on the door of the apartment, where former girlfriend Dakota Anderson, and her current boyfriend, Tobias Au, live. Ross and Anderson share custody of a child.
After Ross entered the residence, the report said Au shot Ross several times. The reason for the shooting is still being investigated.
Sheriff Rick Meyer said Anderson had been allowing Ross to pick up the child for visits and drop the child off afterward.
Au and Anderson were taken to the sheriff's office, where they were interviewed about the case.
There was enough evidence, Meyer said, to arrest Au and charge him with murder.
The results of an autopsy on the victim are pending, Meyer said.
