Bond has been set at a million dollars for 26-year-old Raymond McKinnon, brought back to face murder charges in the death of a Bell County man.
McKinnon had been held in the Commance County Jail in Oklahoma after being arrested last Wednesday in Lawton.
He was named in an arrest warrant in connection with the death of 21-year-old Hasson Lindsey, Jr whose body was found by Temple detectives along a roadway in rural west Bell County,
Lindsey was a Killeen resident who had previously been reported missing.
His death was ruled a homicide, with the case presented to the Bell County District Attorney’s Office.
The case was accepted and a complaint charging the 26-year-old McKinnon with murder was issued.
McKinnon was also identified by Temple police as a man who had been the center of another investigation and incident that had occurred back on July 11.
Police say he was the man who had gotten out of a vehicle saying he had been shot following a traffic stop at Westfield Boulevard and and West Adams that afternoon.
The officer making the stop stayed with the victim who by then had passed out, but relayed a description of the vehicle that had driven off from the scene
That car was stopped later after a short pursuit that resulted in a collision with a Temple patrol unit.
McKinnon and one of the occupants of the car had both been taken to the hospital for treatment.
The man, now identified as McKinnon had left the hospital against medical advice the next day.
At that time there had been no connection made between McKinnon and the missing man.
