Bond set at $3 million for grandson accused of murdering Cleveland grandparents

CLEVELAND - A 29-year-old man was arraigned in court on Thursday for the slayings of his grandparents at their Cleveland home.

Bond was set at $3 million for Anthony King, the Parma man facing aggravated murder charges who appeared tired and yawned throughout the proceeding.

Cleveland police believe King killed his grandparents Jim King, 75, and Wava King, 72, at their Virginia Avenue home on Monday.

The Cuyahoga County medical examiner's office said both victims died from a blunt impact to the head that caused skull and brain injuries.

The couple's daughter lived with her parents and awoke Monday morning to find her mother dead on the couch, covered in blood and with pillows and a blanket. She called police, who found Jim King dead in the basement.

It's unclear when Anthony King will appear next in court.
