An Ohio man called “a barbaric predator” by prosecutors was arraigned on charges of murdering a man he found under a bridge by shooting him several times in the head, according to officials.

An indictment of Aaron Parsons by a grand jury in Cleveland also includes an alleged attempt to kill a double amputee in February by tying him to railroad tracks.

“Judgment day is coming,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley said in a statement obtained by WOIO-TV.

Parsons has pleaded not guilty in the case.

Parsons, 36, recently was arrested in North Carolina, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The indictment says he and two other men carjacked a 59-year-old double amputee in Cleveland on Feb. 21.

Authorities say the amputee was pistol-whipped while being forced to drive to railroad tracks.

‘If the cold weather doesn’t kill you, a train will,'” prosecutors quoted the suspects as saying.

They allegedly tied the alleged victim to the railroad tracks, then tossed his wheelchair in a ravine and drove off in his vehicle which still had his prosthetic legs inside, police said.

The amputee somehow was able to crawl away and call police. His car was found burned.

The charges against Parsons include attempted murder, attempted robbery and arson.

But the indictment includes a more recent deadly attack at the same railroad tracks on March 24.

Parsons and Danielle Mayne-Hicks, 27, beat Charles Eggers, 23, before shooting him, authorities say.

Authorities have identified a second suspect in the February case. Eric DeJesus, 24, is wanted for aggravated robbery, but apparently has not been arrested.
