Williams County Man Facing Murder Charge

A Williams County man has been charged with mur­der… again! 24 year old Tyson Reli­ford of Edger­ton, is charged with first degree mur­der in con­nec­tion with the death of 3-year-old Colum­bus girl ear­lier this year. Reli­ford was also charged with assault and child endan­ger­ment in con­nec­tion to an inci­dent that hap­pened back in Feb­ru­ary, result­ing in the death of Aiyanna Thomp­son, of Colum­bus. Reli­ford was orig­i­nally arrested Feb. 8 after bar­ri­cad­ing him­self in an apart­ment, but in April, the felony charges against Reli­ford were dropped due to the need for addi­tional inves­ti­ga­tion. Reli­ford is being held at the Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio on an unre­lated domes­tic vio­lence charge after he was sen­tenced in Bryan Munic­i­pal Court on Feb. 20. His release date would have been Aug. 5. Now how­ever, in light of the new mur­der charge, he will likely remain in cus­tody a bit longer.
