Roommate is indicted in man's stabbing death

A Toledo man was indicted yesterday by a Lucas County grand jury in the Oct. 15 stabbing death of his roommate.

Mark Wayne Jones, 32, was indicted on one count of murder. He allegedly stabbed Tyrone Willis, 27, at 1133 North Huron St., where they shared an apartment. Mr. Willis was stabbed once in the chest.

Police said an argument between the two men ensued after Mr. Jones left the apartment to buy drugs, but returned without drugs or money. Mr. Jones turned himself in to police at the Safety Building after the stabbing. He is being held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $500,000 bond.
