LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – A judge refused to lower the bond for a suspect in a Columbiana County murder.

Police say Justin Givens is a suspect in the March 18 murder of Mary Ann McGuire on Depot Road in Hanover Township.

In court on Monday, Givens’ attorney asked for the $1 million bond to be reduced. The assistant prosecutor opposed the reduction calling Givens a flight risk and accusing him of plotting to escape.

Givens’ case was bound over to the grand jury. He’s charged with having weapons while under a disability.

Murder charges have not been filed yet.
