Bond was set at $1 million today for a man suspected in the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend in West Toledo last October, authorities said.

During his arraignment at Toledo Municipal Court, Marquis Walker, 29, who was charged with murder, was ordered held in lieu of the bond at the Lucas County jail until April 4, with his case continued to that date. 

Mr. Walker, whose last known address was 1248 Willow Ave. in East Toledo, was accused of shooting and killing 23-year-old Jordan Jones-Harris at the Tamaron apartments on Alexis Road near Jackman Road around 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 13.

The suspect appeared relaxed during the arraignment. He was not given an option to pay 10 percent of the bond and be released.

Last October, the family of the victim was reaching out, such as with flyers, in efforts to help police track down Mr. Walker who was living in Toledo when the shooting took place. The victim was shot multiple times.

Ms. Jones-Harris dated Mr. Walker for years, but ended the relationship several months before the shooting, a relative said shortly after the shooting.
