LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The 25-year-old accused of intentionally running down his ex-girlfriend and mother of his young son has been indicted.

Todd O'Brien was slapped with a number of charges, including aggravated vehicular homicide and aggravated murder.

Police tell 19 Action News that Kaylee M. Russell-Martin of Painesville was out walking her 4-year old son in the area of Barrington Ridge and Normandy Drive when O'Brien started an argument.

Kaylee called 911 for help, as she had a restraining order against O'Brien because he was stalking her.

"My ex just drove through here and tried to hit me....and he's driving around and he keeps calling my phone and he's like, "Ah, I'm going to run you guys over," Kaylee told the dispatcher.

Kaylee took their son into the house and when she came back out O'Brien started another fight, got into his car and backed over Kaylee, killing her.

O'Brien originally kept going, but eventually turned himself into police.
