“I have sworn out a warrant for Mr. (Ray Scott) Heid,” said Sheriff's Detective Denver Triggs. “He is going to be charged with aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and tampering with evidence.”
Triggs said more charges will be presented to the Scioto County grand jury, including possibly grand theft auto, at a later date.
Triggs said he filed the charges in Portsmouth Municipal Court Wednesday morning.
While Heid turned himself in Sunday, he was not arrested on the murder or additional charges.
“We arrested him on a probation violation warrant, and he was being held without bond.” Triggs said.
Sheriff's officials located a vehicle belonging to Kevin Swords, 37, of 2100 D Stoney Run Road, West Portsmouth, on Ohio 125 Thursday, after Heid reportedly abandoned it when it ran out of gas.
Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini, said at the time, Heid had run into the woods for two days and became sick, cold and hungry.
Deputies said Heid left the woods and went to an acquaintance's house in the Stoney Run Road area, and asked that person to call the sheriff's office to tell them he was going to turn himself.
A patrol unit was dispatched, and Heid was taken into custody without incident.
Heid, 25, whose last known addresses were in Waverly and Bainbridge, was charged in the shooting death of Swords.
Donini said a 911 dispatch had received a call to 2100 Stoney Run Road, where a man had been shot.
Deputies, detectives and emergency medical personnel were dispatched to the scene, and Swords was life-flighted to Southern Ohio Medical Center, but reportedly died en route. He was pronounced dead by Scioto County Cor-oner Dr. Terry Johnson at the helicopter landing site.
Capt. David Hall, of the sheriff's office, had said the shooting involved a woman, the former boyfriend, Heid, and the current boyfriend, Swords.
Donini said anyone with information about the case may contact Triggs at (740) 355-8245. All calls will be kept confidential.
