CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man arrested for a December homicide in Walnut Hills is being held on a $1 million bond.

On December 14, 28-year-old Devon Heard was located outside a house on the 3000 block of Park Ave. He was taken to University Hospital where he died of his injuries.

Cincinnati Police, along with the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST), arrested 33-year-old Anton Denson, and charged him with Heard's murder. This is the 100th arrest that SOFAST has made since the group's inception in May 2006.

In celebration of SOFAST's 100th arrest, United States Marshal Cathy J. Jones stated, "SOFAST's 100th homicide arrest in Cincinnati is being profiled for multiple reasons.  First, it is to highlight the dedication of our task force officers from our federal, state, and local partners.  They risk their lives every day to protect our communities.  These are dangerous and often desperate fugitives we are apprehending.  Second, to say thank you to the community members, Crime Stoppers, and media that have joined the fight to stop the violence.  We need their tips and cooperation.  Finally, to take a moment to remember for every 100 homicide suspects arrested there are at least 100 victims who have tragically died.  We are not here to judge guilt or innocence, nor to make judgment in regards to the circumstances of the deaths and background of the victims.  We are here to protect and serve.  We will not stop". 

Anton Denson is currently at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
