LIMA — Bond was set at $2.5 million Wednesday for the Lima man police say killed the infant son of his live-in girlfriend.
Gabriel Salyers, 31, made his initial court appearance Wednesday in Lima Municipal Court following his arrest on a charge of murder for causing the death of 18-month-old Jaxxon Sullivan during the commission of a felonious assault.
Salyers appeared via video-conferencing in the courtroom of Municipal Court Judge Tammie Hursh. Allen County Prosecuting Attorney Juergen Waldick requested Salyers’ bond be set at $2.5 million, telling the judge the suspect poses a substantial flight risk because he faces a maximum penalty if convicted of life in prison.
