Englewood police and fire were called to Hematite, Inc, an auto parts manufacturing plant, to reports of a co-worker found in a restroom that was bleeding. Lifesaving measures were attempted, by medics, but Monroe died on scene.

“The investigation, including video surveillance and other evidence, determined that the defendant had been in a verbal altercation with the victim earlier. The two went into the restroom and a short time later, only the defendant left the restroom. Once the defendant was identified, he was taken into custody at the business,” a spokesperson for Englewood Police said.

Jordan remains in the Montgomery County Jail and bond has been set at $1,000,000. He is due back in court on March 28, 8:30 a.m., for arraignment.
