Kyle Parker faces murder, rape, kidnapping and other charges. In court documents released this week, Parker reportedly told his step-father he was not going to prison for the rest of his life and was going to commit suicide.

Owen County Jail officials say suspects booked on such serious charges are automatically placed on suicide watch as a precaution.
