Attorneys: More charges may come against Steven King

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A grand jury could soon decide whether or not to charge Steven King, the ex-boyfriend of east Toledo 1-year-old Elaina Steinfurth's mother, with homicide in the little girl's death.

Elaina went missing on June 2, 2013 and was found dead in the King family's garage on September 5.  Both Steven King and the girl's mother, Angela Steinfurth, are being held on obstruction of justice charges in the case.

It's been five long months since Elaina's family has seen her alive and nobody knows who took her life. 

"I don't know how I'm going to feel. I'm gonna be mad. I'm gonna be mad as hell," said Elaina's grandfather, Richard Schiewe.

In court Tuesday, King's attorney asked a judge to push back his client's trial date, as the defense is in talks with the prosecution about the possibility of homicide charges being filed against King. Defense attorneys and prosecutors are waiting to get their hands on a doctor's report, which could determine if King will be charged with homicide. The report is complete, but not available to either the prosecution or defense at this time.

Prosecutors say if the report indicates King should be charged with homicide, the charge will be taken to a grand jury.

"I got my phone right beside me. I'm waiting for a call, for somebody to call and say, you know, he's been indicted, you know, by a grand jury," said Schiewe. "You're just intense. You're on pins and needles."

King had been set to face trial on the obstruction charge on Nov. 4. That trial date was vacated Tuesday, and a new trial was scheduled to begin on Dec. 9.
