CARROLLTON (Tusco TV) - A massive bond order is ensuring the man accused in the death of 14-year-old Jonathan Minard will remain jailed until his case is resolved.
Carroll County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Repella II on Thursday set the bond for 30-year Matthew H. Little of Carrollton at $10 million. Little was arrested a day earlier on a 15-count grand jury indictment following a lengthy investigation by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the FBI and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Little is charged with involuntary manslaughter, permitting drug abuse, corrupting another with drugs, child endangerment, and reckless homicide for the death the county coroner ruled a homicide by acute fentanyl intoxication. The Dellroy teen’s body was found buried in a shallow grave earlier this year on the same Washington Township farm where he was reportedly working before he went missing.
Little is also charged in the indictment with gross abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence and several misdemeanors. He is due back in court Tuesday morning for arraignment.
