Independence police arrest suspect in death of 83-year-old man

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio-- The FOX 8 I-Team has learned Independence police have made an arrest in the death of an 83-year-old man, who was an apparent victim of road rage.

Police have arrested Cronie Lloyd, of Cleveland, and charged him with murder.

Police made the arrest one day after the I-Team revealed new pictures and evidence in the case.

The victim, Gary Power, was assaulted last weekend after getting out of his car at a gas station.

Police said during a press conference Friday that there was possibly a traffic altercation between Power and Lloyd.

After DNA evidence positively identified Lloyd as the suspect, authorities obtained a murder warrant for his arrest.  Within hours of obtaining the murder warrant Friday morning, officials had Lloyd in custody.

Police say that the murder warrant revealed that Lloyd has a violent past.

Lloyd is currently in Independence City Jail.  He will be arraigned next week and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office will present the case to the grand jury.

The date of his initial court hearing has yet to be determined.
