A Youngstown man charged with murdering his ex-girlfriend remains in jail on $1 million bond.

Kyle Rice appeared in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday morning.

He was indicted earlier this month in the shooting death of Danekua Bankston last month at her home on the city’s west side.

At the time, family members of the victim said Rice killed her because she had just ended their relationship, which relatives say was an abusive one.

Rice’s trial is set for late next month.
