An Ohio man wanted on multiple charges – including murder – was arrested in Wheeling on Tuesday.
Jordyn Preston, 20, was wanted in the December 2017 murder of his then-girlfriend’s father in Columbus. Preston is also accused of shooting his girlfriend that night. She survived her injuries.
In March 2018, Preston was arrested by the U.S. Marshals in Springfield, Ohio, but was released on $500,000 bond 4 months later.
He violated the conditions of his bond by failing to appear for scheduled court appearances and was arrested Tuesday at the intersection of York and Zane Street on Wheeling Island.
During the arrest, Preston also was in possession of 22 grams of suspected cocaine. He was transported to the Northern Regional Jail, where he awaits extradition back to Columbus.
