Abandoned Toddler Leads Ohio Police To Slain Mom

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Police are on the lookout for an attacker they say killed a young Ohio woman and then abandoned her 4-year-old son at a highway rest stop.

A Maryland couple found the boy wandering around a rest area along Interstate 70 in central Ohio.

Mike and Judith McConnell told NBC's Today Show today that the boy told them a stranger had entered his house without knocking. He says the man then shot his "mommy."

The couple brought the child into their vehicle to keep him warm and contacted authorities. Police later found the boy's mother shot to death in her Dayton home.

Two computers were stolen from the home.
