WOOSTER, Ohio -- A judge has ordered an Ohio man jailed without bond until a hearing next week on charges that he killed a 9-year-old girl whose body was found in a trash bin.

Twenty-four-year-old Jerrod Metsker appeared via video for an arraignment Monday in Wooster, southwest of Akron. A preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 23.

He is charged in the death of Reann Murphy, who authorities said lived across from him in a trailer park in nearby Smithville.

Metsker was arrested Sunday, about 12 hours after deputies found Reann’s body in a trash bin near her home.

The girl was last seen Saturday night playing outdoors at the park. Her body was found about five hours after she was reported missing.
