Bond is set at $1million for an Indiana man charged with a Licking County murder.

Court records show 30-year-old Mark Valentino made his initial court appearance Tuesday in Licking County Common Pleas Court.

Valentino was indicted in March on multiple counts including aggravated murder, murder, aggravated robbery and grand theft in connection with the death of 55-year-old Hershel Roberts.

Authorities found Roberts dead in his home on North Street Road in McKean Township in July of 2010.

Valentino was arrested several days later after a 15 mile pursuit in the Kokomo, Indiana area.

He is scheduled to be arraigned April 19th at 8:30 a.m. in Licking County Common Pleas Court.
