CLEVELAND -- A 30-year-old man charged with aggravated murder for killing a couple at their used car lot in Cleveland was issued $5 million bond Thursday.

Records show Joseph McAlpine was arrested and charged Tuesday for fatally shooting 47-year-old Michael Kuznik and 46-year-old Trina Tomola in April. He was arrested after investigators matched his DNA to evidence gathered at the crime scene.

The couple was found by their 19-year-old son. Both were shot in the head.

Police say two cars, surveillance equipment and computers containing business records were taken from the business. The family's dog also was killed.
