CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A Carthage woman now faces charges for allegedly helping the man who fired on police at a Kroger, then led them on chase that ended in his suicide. Natalie Kilgore faces two counts of obstruction of justice for allegedly helping Ronald Foster.

Springfield Township police say Foster exchanged gunfire with an officer on Nov. 5. He got away. No one was hurt.

Police searched for Foster for days. They closed in on him when police say he and a woman tried to get a vehicle that had been impounded after the Kroger incident.

Foster led them on a chase that ended on I-75 with a crash. Foster was dead from a gunshot wound to the head. The incident shut down the highway for hours.

According to court papers, Kilgore lied to Springfield Township police about her relationship with Foster and the events surrounding the shots fired at Kroger. Investigators also say she provided Foster with a van to avoid arrest.
