Suspect in cyclist’s killing chased boys on bikes in 2014


TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Sheriff’s records show that a man accused of abducting and killing an Ohio college student out riding her bicycle chased a pair of boys on their bikes two years ago.

James Worley called deputies about the boys in June 2014 and later said he briefly chased them to a neighbor’s house because he’d been worried about break-ins around his property west of Toledo. No charges were filed.

This week, authorities charged the 57-year-old Worley with killing 20-year-old University of Toledo student Sierah Joughin (JAW’-gihn). He spent three years in prison after abducting a woman in 1990.

Search warrants say investigators found a hidden room with restraints inside Worley’s barn.

Records on sheriff’s runs to his home show he frequently called the department in recent years.

Worley has declined to comment.
