Man accused of killing girlfriend appears before judge

A man charged with murder, accused of killing his girlfriend by stabbing her multiple times, made his first court appearance this morning.

Ronald Green's bond was set at $230,000. The judge also ruled he is not allowed to have any contact with either his child or the child of his late girlfriend.

Green showed little emotion as the prosecutor described what he is accused of doing. The prosecution alleges Green killed his ex-girlfriend, Cecelia Sanders by stabbing her at least six times on July 29.

Prosecutors say Green and Sanders were in her home together and Sanders' mother walked into the home to find her 3-year-old granddaughter injured and locked in the closet and her daughter dead with her 8-month-old child next to her.

Green is now charged with both murder and abandoning/endangering a child.

"Cecelia Sanders was found in her bedroom face down with blood. At least six stab wounds to her chest, her arms, her legs. She had a shirt on and no pants," Assistant District Attorney Angela Weltin said.

The prosecutor is waiting on autopsy results but told the court today there is a chance Green could later be charged with sexual assault.

The judge said if Green is released on bond there will be additional restrictions placed on him.

His next court appearance has not been scheduled yet.
