CLEVELAND (AP) — A Cleveland man accused of killing four people including his ex-girlfriend and their 6-year-old son has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder.
A judge on Friday ordered 26-year-old Armond Johnson Sr. to be held on $5 million bond.
Police say Johnson shot his ex-girlfriend, 25-year-old Takeyra (tuh-KEE’-ruh) Collins, either late Monday or early Tuesday.
Authorities say Johnson then set a fire in the woman’s house that killed his 6-year-old son and the boy’s 2-year-old sister.
Police say he then shot the woman’s neighbor, 35-year-old David Cousin Jr., who they think just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Autopsies show the two children died of smoke inhalation.
A message seeking comment was left with Johnson’s attorney.
