NAPOLEON, OH (WTOL) - The man accused of stabbing his fiancee to death in Napoleon faced a judge Tuesday morning.
Michael Peddicord, 22, is being held on a 2 million dollar bond. He appeared at the Napoleon Municipal Court via video from the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio to face charges of aggravated murder in the death of Katilyn Nagel, 19.
Peddicord was assigned a public defender. Peddicord is expected to enter a plea at a second hearing at 3:15 p.m. on Jan. 26.
According to police, Nagel was stabbed to death in Peddicord's parents' home at 555 N. Main Street in Napoleon.
