Bond $2M for suspect in Ohio real estate death
RAVENNA, Ohio — An Ohio judge has ordered a $2 million bond for a Florida man accused of murder in the shooting of a real estate agent whose body was found in a vacant home.
Fifty-nine-year-old Robert Grigelaitis of Fort Lauderdale was being held in the Portage County jail and appeared by video Thursday before Municipal Judge Mark Fankhauser.
Fankhauser set an Oct. 8 preliminary hearing. Fankhauser also appointed the county public defender’s office to represent Grigelaitis. Office Chief Dennis Lager (LAH’-ger) says his office had not yet met with Grigelaitis and he could not comment on the case.
Grigelaitis is accused of killing Andrew VonStein, whose body was found last week in a home he was trying to sell in Ravenna. Grigelaitis has an addresses in the northeast Ohio city. He was arrested Tuesday in Turkey, N.C.
