A Baltimore man is facing additional murder charges for the death of a second person five days after law enforcement officials say he drove his pickup truck through the entrance of a hospital emergency room in September.
A superseding indictment lists a second aggravated murder charge and a second charge of murder against Raymond Leiendecker, 44, according to court documents.
Leiendecker is accused of driving his truck into the emergency department entrance of the Diley Ridge Medical Center, 7911 Diley Road in Canal Winchester, on Sept. 13.
Scott Davis, a medical-center employee, died shortly after Leiendecker drove through the front doors.
Cindy Fritz, a patient seeking treatment, was injured at the scene and taken to a hospital for treatment. According to Kyle Witt, Fairfield County prosecutor, Fritz died Sept. 18, after being discharged from the hospital.
Witt said there was a large gap between the original indictment Oct. 10 and the superseding indictment because his office was awaiting the final report from Fritz's autopsy to determine her death was connected to the Sept. 13 incident.
Leiendecker has been in the Fairfield County Jail since being arrested Sept. 13, Witt said, and the original bond of $5 million will remain.
"My office is looking toward an appropriate and just outcome," Witt said. "We've been speaking with the families of the victims, including Mrs. Fritz's husband, toward that end."
Leiendecker was originally indicted on one count each of aggravated murder, murder and vandalism, all felonies.
According to court documents, a jury trial is scheduled for Feb. 25.
