On Friday, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced 10 charges against the 18-year-old Garfield Heights woman, including the following:

  • Two counts of Aggravated Murder
  • Two counts of Murder
  • Two counts of Felonious Assault
  • One count of Aggravated Robbery
  • One count of Grand Theft
  • One count of Having Weapons Under Disability 
  • One count of Petty Theft

McLoyd is alleged to have shot and killed Officer Bartek during a carjacking that occurred on New Year's Eve in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 4300 block of Rocky River Drive. While Officer Bartek was off-duty at the time, it was ultimately ruled that his death occurred in the line of duty.

“Detectives reviewed video surveillance footage, which showed Bartek being ambushed and robbed by an armed subject,” according to the complaint filed against McLoyd.

Officer's Bartek's vehicle was later recovered in a police pursuit, which authorities said brought the arrest of another suspect in the case -- Anthony Butler Jr. He’s charged with fleeing, receiving stolen property and traffic-related charges after allegedly crashing Bartek’s vehicle in a “multi-jurisdictional police pursuit.”

McLoyd was later arrested and is currently being held at the Cuyahoga County Jail on a $5 million bond. Earlier this week, she was arraigned on the initial charges against her including aggravated murder.

An arraignment for her new charges is scheduled for a later date.
