BATAVIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - A Clermont County judge set a bond of $4 million for the second murder suspect involved in a drug deal that went wrong on Jan. 17.

Jaydon Maurice Pierce, 22, and Ryan Vest, 30, are accused of shooting and killing 39-year-old Casey Hamblin Moss in a Clermont County Subdivision.

Pierce appeared in Clermont County Municipal Court Friday morning for his arraignment where his bond was set.

Vest’s bond was also set to $4 million and faces an additional charge of tampering with evidence.

Both men face charges of aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder.
