CLEVELAND -- Although the prosecutor had only requested bond set at $1 million, a judge felt the price should be much steeper for double murder suspect Joseph McAlpine.

Bond was set at $5 million for McAlpine during his arraignment Thursday morning on charges connected to the deaths of a married couple at the Mr. Cars dealership in Cleveland.

McAlpine, 29, is charged in the murders of Michael and Trina Kuznik who were found dead at their dealership on E. 185th Street back in April.

Both were shot in the head.

McAlpine previously served nine years in prison for aggravated robbery and was released in 2016.
