TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A Toledo man will remain behind bars after being accused of killing his girlfriend's one-year-old daughter.

Joshua Herron's bond was increased to $2 million on Tuesday by a Lucas County Commons Please judge after a grand jury indicted Herron on an aggravated murder charge.

Herron was initially charged with assault, then later charged with murder after one-year-old Serenity Hunter-Davis passed away from her injuries.

Herron's court-appointed attorney requested a mental and competency evaluation before they move forward with the case.
