An eastern Ohio man accused of killing a pizza delivery driver is being held on $1 million bond.

A judge set bond for 32-year-old Adam Charles Burris at his video arraignment Monday in municipal court in Cambridge, roughly 80 miles east of Columbus.

The Daily Jeffersonian newspaper reports the hearing was continued until Thursday so that the Cambridge man could talk with an attorney. None appeared for him in court.

Burris is charged with murder in the slaying of 26-year-old Kayla Thompson, also of Cambridge. Authorities in Guernsey County say she didn't return from a delivery to Burris' home last Thursday.

The sheriff says Burris was later taken into custody and led authorities to Thompson's body near a boat ramp at Dillon State Park in neighboring Muskingum County.


A bond hearing is set for an eastern Ohio man accused of killing a pizza delivery driver.

Adam Charles Burris of Cambridge is expected to face a judge Monday for the first time since he was charged in the slaying of 26-year-old Kayla Thompson.

Authorities in Guernsey County say that Thompson, also of Cambridge, didn't return from a delivery run on Thursday.

The sheriff there says Burris was later taken into custody and led authorities to the woman's body near a boat ramp at Dillon State Park in neighboring Muskingum County.

No attorney information was available for Burris.

He is being held in the Guernsey County jail on unrelated charges.
