Matthew Little, 30, was arrested last week and charged with 15 indictments, including involuntary manslaughter, reckless murder, gross mistreatment of a corpse and child threats, at the death of Jonathan Minard.

The teenager was reported missing in April and a few days later his body was buried in a shallow grave on the Little Farm in Washington Township.

His death was ruled as a murder by & # 39; acute fentanyl intoxication & # 39 ;. Prosecutors say that Little has delivered a medicine with the powerful opioid to Jonathan.

The suspect was indicted Wednesday in Carroll County and did not plead guilty to all 15 charges.

Little's defense team asked the judge to lower his bond from $ 10 million to $ 500,000, claiming that Little is not a flight risk.

The judge brought the band back to $ 1 million under different conditions.

Little, whose long rap magazine includes countless drug and gun crime charges, will have to wear a ankle monitor and stay on his farm property within 500 feet of his home. He may also not have contact with the victim's family.

Jonathan was last seen five months ago on April 13.

According to family members, Little had picked up the teenager and taken to his family farm to milk cows, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

He reportedly complained about a toothache and went to Little & # 39; s home closer to Carrollton, where he tried to call his parents to pick him up.

His mother said she was never called. Little's house is supposed to be the last place Jonathan was seen.

After an extensive six-day search, the body of Jonathan was discovered on Little's farm.

Authorities identified Little as an interested party early in the investigation, but did not call him public until the indictment was pronounced.

He spoke to researchers at least twice and agreed to do a polygraph test, but later changed his mind, according to the sheriff's office.

The indictment states that Little & # 39; knowingly & # 39; Jonathan gave a controlled substance containing fentanyl.

Another indictment in the indictment identifies that controlled substance as marijuana.

Prosecutors claimed that Little did not inform anyone of Jonathan's death and instead decided to hide his corpse in a shallow grave.

A massive search was started after Jonathan was missing on April 13
