The parents of a 5-year-old Jackson, Ohio, girl who was previously reported missing made their first court appearance since they were arrested and charged with her murder. The police announced on Tuesday evening that the body of the little girl had been found hidden in the family's restaurant.
A judge at the Massillon Municipal Court set a bond of $5 million for 29-year-old Mingming Chen and 34-year-old Liang J. Zhao. The couple are both from the Jackson Township and stand accused of murdering their 5-year-old daughter, Ashley Zhao, who they had reported missing late Monday night. For the part she played in the death of her daughter, Chen will be charged with murder while the father, Liang Zhao, is charged with complicity to commit murder, both of which are first-degree felonies.
