December 16, 2013 (WOOSTER, Ohio) — Authorities say a man accused of killing a 9-year-old girl who lived in his Ohio trailer park has a \’\’diminished mental capacity.\’\’

But Wayne County Sheriff\’s Office Capt. Douglas Hunter won\’t release information about a specific diagnosis for 24-year-old Jerrod Metsker.

Neighbors say Metsker would play outside with the local children and built a playhouse out of blankets alongside his home, where he\’d spend time with youngsters less than half his age.

Authorities say he\’d been building a snowman with second-grader Reann Murphy just hours before she was reported missing over the weekend. Reann\’s body was found in a trash bin.

Neighbor Judy Jarvis says Metsker took part in the search for Reann.

Metsker is being held on $1 million bond following his arraignment Monday. His mother and sister won\’t comment.
