Man wanted in stepson's death caught in chase

An Ohio man, charged in the death of his stepson, is behind bars after leading police on a car chase. A nationwide manhunt started Thursday when police said Jeff Bedinger shot his stepson in their Troy apartment.

A sheriff's deputy spotted Bedinger's car Saturday in Washington Township.

That's when the pursuit started, reaching speeds of 70 miles per hour.

The chase ended when Bedinger slammed into another vehicle, and his car flipped. That's when a gun flew out the window.

Police said they were lucky the gun flew out, because it made the subsequent arrest less dangerous.
