CORUNNA, Mich. (AP) - A judge in Shiawassee County has ordered a 21-year-old man held on $3 million bond in the fatal shooting of his 81-year-old grandfather.

The Flint Journal says Joshua Z. James of Ingham County’s Meridian Township was arraigned Monday in Shiawassee County District Court in Corunna on an open murder charge. It isn’t known if he has a lawyer.

State police say that James shot Marlin Howard at Howard’s home in Woodhull Township. The department says Howard’s son found his body Friday.

Lt. David Kaiser tells the Lansing State Journal that investigators traced the suspect to a Days Inn in Eaton County’s Delta Township and arrested him Saturday. Kaiser says police also found the victim’s stolen pickup truck.
