Struthers murder suspect held on half million dollar bond

Posted: Updated:

STRUTHERS, Ohio - The suspect accused of killing a man in his Struthers home is back in Ohio.

26-year-old Matthew Alexander has been brought back from Pennsylvania to face a charge of murder.

A judge in Struthers Municipal Court set Alexander's bond at $500-thousand during his arraignment Friday morning.

Alexander is accused of fatally shooting 34-year old Matt Molnar.

Molnar's body was found inside his Renee Drive home early Thursday.

The Mahoning County Coroner's office on Friday ruled Molnar's death a homicide, saying he died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Struthers police became aware of the crime after Alexander turned himself into police in Farrell, saying he'd been involved in a shooting.

Police have not revealed a motive for the crime, but neighbors reported hearing two men arguing at the home before hearing gunshots.

Alexander had been living with Molnar for several months..
