QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - A man in the Mississippi River city of Quincy has been ordered jailed in lieu of $1 million bond on charges he slashed the throat of another man.

The Quincy Herald-Whig (https://bit.ly/1mDHklx) reports that 27-year-old Alex Koehler made his first court appearance Thursday in Adams County on a charge of attempted first-degree murder.

Authorities allege that Koehler on July 2 used a knife in injuring 56-year-old Robert Owens. State’s Attorney Jon Barnard says Koehler and Owens lived together from time to time.

Owens as of Thursday remained in critical condition at a hospital.

A message left Thursday with Koehler’s court-appointed public defender seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.
