The convicted sex offender accused in the 1984 rape and murder of a Cleveland teen was in court on Thursday morning.

The judge set bond at $5 million dollars for Hernandez L. Warren. Warren is charged with aggravated murder.

Gloria Pointer, 14, was raped and murdered on the east side on her way to school in December of 1984. She was found dead in the stairwell of an apartment building.

19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek was first to learn on Tuesday about Warren's arrest. He was linked to the case through DNA.

"Due to the DNA hit, due to the evidence that was retested and retested we finally got a DNA profile," said Cleveland Police Detective Lem Griffin.

The case will now be bound over to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office which is expected to seek additional charges from a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury.
