Ohio judge denies lower bond for man in park crime spree


PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio judge has refused to lower a $10 million bond for a man suspected in a crime spree that included the fatal shooting of one woman and the wounding of another.

Juan Emmanuel Razo, 35, appeared in Painesville Municipal Court on Monday. He’s charged with attempted murder for shooting a 40-year-old woman in the arm last week at a park about 30 miles east of Cleveland.

Authorities say a grand jury will hear evidence to obtain charges against Razo in the fatal shooting June 27 of 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik at her home near the park and for the attempted rape of a 14-year-old girl earlier that day.

An attorney told the judge Razo has mental health issues. Razo is a Mexican citizen in the U.S. illegally.
