By By JOHN SEEWER

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A mother and her former boyfriend in Ohio have been indicted in the death of the woman's toddler whose remains were found three months ago.

The indictments announced Monday come after Toledo police spent several months this summer looking for 19-month-old Elaina Steinfurth before her remains were found in the rafters of a garage in September.

A grand jury in Toledo indicted the mother, Angela Steinfurth, on a murder charge while the former boyfriend, Steven King II, was indicted on charges of aggravated murder, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse.

Both have been in jail for several months on charges of obstruction.

The garage where the remains were found belongs to the man's family.
