Bond Set For Man Accused Of Killing 80-Year-Old In Mount Vernon


UPDATED: Wednesday April 9, 2014 5:46 PM

Bond has been set at $1 million for a man who police say killed an 80-year-old woman while burglarizing her central Ohio apartment.
    
The Knox County prosecutor's office said 34-year-old Tyrone Caldwell was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated murder and aggravated burglary in the slaying of Marilyn Eversole in Mount Vernon, northeast of Columbus.
    
Police say Eversole was killed Tuesday morning at her apartment in a senior-living complex, but they're not saying how she died.
    
Police said the suspect in the slaying was taking her TV when Eversole's home health aide confronted him. The aide, who wasn't identified, was hospitalized with injuries suffered in an ensuing scuffle.
    
Caldwell appeared via video Wednesday in Knox County court for the bond hearing. Online records did not list an attorney for him.
