The state medical examiner has completed the final autopsy report for Aja Johnson, the 7-year-old Oklahoma City child abducted and slain by her stepfather, Lester Hobbs.

The report is expected to be hand-delivered to Aja's father, J.J. Johnson, at 1:15 today at his south Oklahoma City home.

Hobbs took his own life by consuming antifreeze, the state medical examiner's office reported earlier.

The decomposed bodies of Hobbs and Aja were found March 29 in woods southeast of Norman. Hobbs' remains were inside the white Toyota Paseo that state agents said he used in Aja's abduction.

Aja's body was near the car, covered with a blanket. At the time the bodies were found, it had been more than two months since they disappeared.

Tonya Hobbs, Aja's mother and Lester Hobbs' estranged wife, was found dead Jan. 24 inside his motor home in Geronimo, about 100 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.

The discovery of her body led to a statewide manhunt for Lester Hobbs and Aja.
