A Waterloo, Iowa man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend is being held on $1 million bond.
Shaun Hogan, 36, appeared Friday via a closed-circuit monitor at the Linn County District Court in Cedar Rapids on a charge of first-degree murder.
Authorities say Hogan killed 29-year-old Crystal Marie Gaffney, also of Waterloo. She is the mother of Hogan's infant daughter.
Hogan was found Wednesday morning in the middle of a road near Walker, Iowa. An autopsy determined she died of head trauma. Hogan was arrested Thursday.
Court records show Hogan and Gaffney were involved in a child custody matter.
