CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A man accused of killing two people has bonded out of jail.

Blake Sargi, 27, is accused of killing 38-year-old Heavenly Goddess Murphy-Jackson and 39-year-old William Larondez Jackson Jr.

A judge set Sargi's bond at $10,000,000 and ordered him not possess any firearm or other deadly weapons.

Ten percent bond was posted by a family member of Sargi in the amount of $1,000,000 plus $85 for state fees, according to court records.

Shortly after 11 p.m. on Saturday, a woman called the sheriff’s office to tell them her stepson had killed two people inside a vehicle parked on Andrea Drive in Concord Township. She told the dispatcher that her stepson went back to the home of his mother and stepfather just about a half-mile away on Oakridge Drive.

According to the 911 call, the mother of Sargi called his father, who lives at a separate location, to say their son had shot two people. The stepmother of Sargi then relayed the information to the sheriff's dispatch center.

Within three minutes, deputies responded to Andrea Drive and found a male and female with apparent gunshot wounds to the head inside the front seats of a white Yukon. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

At the same time, deputies responded to a home on Oakridge Drive, where the stepmother told authorities Sargi was located.

Upon the arrival of deputies, the stepfather came outside to inform them that Sargi’s mother was trying to convince her son to come out of the house and surrender.

Members from the Lake County SWAT team negotiated with Sargi for about 45 minutes before he came out of the home on Oakridge and surrendered peacefully.
