Citra Murder Suspect Apprehended, Given No Bond
Published July 9th, 2014
OCALA---A murder suspect has been caught in Marion County and a judge gave him no bond Wednesday morning during first appearance.
But he hasn't been charged with the murder yet.
The Marion County Sheriff's Office offered a $5,000 reward for Yarnell Bagley last Thursday because they believe he has information about the June 24th murder of Citra resident Michael Sumpter.
Investigators received an anonymous tip from Crime Stoppers Tuesday about his location: Bagley was hiding in an attic in a house on northwest 3rd street in Ocala.
Detectives say they had a good reason to request Bagley not be given bond Wednesday morning.
"In 2011, he escaped from the juvenile detention center at the Marion County Jail and then escaped from the Marion County Jail," said Detective Clint Smith with the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
Witnesses say on April 10th, Bagley pointed a gun at a person and demanded cash.
The victim was able to identify Bagley by the tattoo on his neck, so he is currently being charged with robbery with a firearm and several other charges, but not for murder, yet.
Wayne Galloway, Jr, the other person of interest, is also being held in jail for robbery with firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Both declined interviews with TV20 Wednesday.
