Ohio State student's accused killer due in court

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- The man accused of kidnapping and killing an Ohio State student is scheduled to face a judge Monday.

Brian Golsby is charged with murder, kidnapping, rape and robbery in the death of Reagan Tokes.

He's also charged in six robberies in German village and South Columbus.

Prosecutors say they'll try to put Golsby on death row.

In the wake of Golsby's arrest, Tokes' family is calling for reforms in a system they say is "broken".

Here's the statement the family issued over the weekend:

"We are and always will be beyond devastated by the tragic loss of our beautiful, precious Reagan. Nothing for our family will ever be the same again. 

This situation has impacted our lives forever and our hearts are broken.

We cling to our steadfast faith for the strength and guidance to persevere for justice, no matter how difficult the journey is. 

In addition, we will continue to seek out and fight for change to the system.

Based on the facts, the system is severely broken. Our daughter suffered and lost her life as a result.

We still are filled with immense gratitude by the continual uplifting and support that continues to propel us forward. Thank you for the outpouring for us and for Reagan."
