A bitter custody battle has taken a deadly turn.
The body found inside a car in Wayne County has been idenitifed as a 25-year-old woman who was reported missing from Summit County early Thursday morning.
The Summit County Sheriff's office contacted New Franklin police to check for missing 25-year-old Ashley Biggs in the 600 block of East Turkeyfoot Lake Road just before 1 a.m. Thursday. Biggs, a pizza delivery driver, had failed to return from a delivery call at that location.
Authorities say it appears a struggle took place near the location they searched, because blood was discovered.
Wayne County Sheriff deputies contacted New Franklin police after they discovered a body inside the woman's missing vehicle in corn field.
New Franklin police have arrested Bigg's former boyfriend Chad Cobb, of Rittman. He was found hiding behind a barn on property belonging to a relative.
New Franklin Police Detective Nick Bollas says the 30-year-old Cobb has been charged with aggravated murder and kidnapping, and is in the Summit County Jail.
He may have allegedly lured Biggs to the closed business on East Turkeyfoot Lake Road.
Biggs and Cobb were the parents of a 6-year-old daughter and were currently involved in a contentious custody dispute in court, according to police.
The case remains under investigation .
