WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) — A judge has ordered an Ohio man jailed on $1 million bond until a hearing next week on charges that he killed a 9-year-old girl whose body was found in a trash bin.

Twenty-four-year-old Jerrod Metsker appeared via video for an arraignment Monday in Wooster, southwest of Akron. A preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 23.

He is charged in the death of Reann Murphy, who authorities said lived across from him in a trailer park in nearby Smithville.

Metsker was arrested Sunday, about 12 hours after deputies found Reann's body in a trash bin near her home.

The girl was last seen Saturday night playing outdoors at the park. A prosecutor says a coroner will determine the cause of death but that the girl was not shot or stabbed.
