The Wayne County Coroner said a missing 9-year-old girl found dead in a trash dumpster over the weekend was strangled.

The preliminary autopsy finding on Reann Murphy was released Monday afternoon by coroner Amy Joliff.

A $1 million bond was set Monday for the man suspected of killing her, 24-year-old, Jerrod E. Metsker.

Metsker was arraigned in Wayne County Municipal Court. Metsker is charged with aggravated murder for the death of Reann Murphy. He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office arrested Metsker Sunday afternoon.

Murphy was reported missing Saturday just after 8:30 p.m. The prosecutor said in court that Murphy was last seen playing with Metsker in the courtyard of the trailer park where they both lived at 5912 Akron Road several hours before she was reported missing.

Sheriff's deputies along with firefighters, and volunteers searched for Murphy for several hours. Police found Murphy's body in a trash dumpster near her home Sunday morning at 1:35 a.m.

Authorities say Metsker made a 9-1-1 call to report Murphy missing and he also took part in a the search for Murphy.

Metsker remains in custody at the Wayne County Justice Center. He is due back in court on December 23 for a preliminary hearing.

Metsker has been described as a neighbor and friend to the Murphy family.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office have not discussed the motive for the crime.
