CLEVELAND — A man accused of killing Dave Brown, a Vietnam veteran who was working inside a laundromat in Maple Heights, appeared in court on Tuesday morning for his arraignment.

Carl Sanders, 31, is charged with aggravated murder and having a weapon under disability.

During his arraignment, the judge issued a $1 million cash surety/property bond.

Police said Sanders was attempting to assault several women at the laundromat with a weapon. Brown intervened, which led to a fight between him and Sanders. Brown was shot twice, dying at the scene, police said.

Sanders is currently being held in the Cuyahoga County Jail.
