RACINE, Wis. (AP) - A Racine man accused of killing his roommate is being held on $1 million cash bond.

A criminal complaint says a dispute over money motivated 27-year-old Jacob Rogers to kill his friend, Andrew Jones. Acquaintances say the 27-year-old victim was the godfather of Rogers’ newborn daughter and was at the hospital for the birth just days before he was killed.

Police say Jones was shot multiple times at a Racine apartment Monday. Rogers was arrested Tuesday night following a manhunt.

He’s charged with first-degree intentional homicide and possessing a firearm as a felon. Court records don’t list a defense attorney.
