Officials renew efforts to solve killing of pregnant mother


GEORGETOWN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Ohio plan to discuss renewed efforts to solve the 2013 fatal shooting of a pregnant mother.

Brown County officials on Tuesday are expected to talk about their commitment to taking a fresh look at the Brittany Stykes homicide case.

Police have said they thought they were responding to an accident in August 2013 when they got a report of a vehicle off the road in a wooded area in Ripley, about 45 miles southeast of Cincinnati.

Instead, they found the 22-year-old Stykes dead from multiple gunshot wounds. Her then-14-month-old daughter was strapped in her car seat, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head.

The girl has since recovered.
