Authorities in North Carolina will not seek the death penalty for Nate Summerfield, the Ashland man accused of killing his girlfriend Lynn Jackenheimer last year.
ASHLAND, Ohio - The parents of murder suspect Nate Summerfield have filed a motion to intervene in the custody hearing of their 3-year-old grandson, the child of slain Lynn Jackenheimer and imprisoned Nate Summerfield.
John and Sandy Summerfield were expected in court Monday morning, Aug. 27 at 9 a.m.
This, after Jackenheimer's parents, Raymond and Lora Johnson, filed for custody of both children.
A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 25 in Juvenile Court.
United States Marshals from the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force said it was the efforts of the Ashland County community that put Nathan Summerfield, the man accused of killing Lynn Jackenheimer last July, behind bars.
The man accused of killing Ashland mother of two Lynn Jackenheimer was indicted by a North Carolina grand jury for first-degree murder.
