A suspect has been charged in the slaying of Jordan Collins in Red Bank.

Jeremy Reinig, 27, is being held in the Hamilton County Jail on charges of criminal homicide and especially aggravated burglary, jail records show.

Red Bank police found Collins' body in his home at 3710 Redding Road about 8 a.m. Saturday. They also found signs of a break-in and suspected a robbery, Detective Sgt. Dan Knight said in a news release Saturday.

Knight was not immediately available for comment Sunday afternoon.

Reinig has been ordered held without bond on the homicide charge and $100,000 bond on the burglary charge. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Red Bank politics has DESTROYED a city that at one time was a desirable place to live. Why did these people not see this coming? Commercially it's a ghost town and a residential slum. All they need are hookers on every corner and its East Lake "North"

Jeez Cartman, Red Bank has it's issues, but it certainly is not what you've described. Red Bank does have it's share of trash, but older people and families are a big part of the mix & actually in certain areas, the property values are maintaining pretty well, due to the proximity to North Chatt. You sound bitter and miserable, sorry!

There are many fine people that still live in Red Bank and may even have felt safe. Sadly, we have many in our society like these non-human individuals who ganged up on an innocent young man, absolutely no consciences, sociopaths each and every one. Seems there is no where in this country that is truly safe. I pray these 4 sociopaths will never, ever get out of jail as they WILL strike again. The terror this young man must have experienced makes my heart hurt. God Bless his sweet family in the days ahead; I can't even imagine what hurt and loss they are experiencing.
