Michael Sutton of Canton Township was arraigned Friday in Romulus District Court. He was ordered jailed without bond.

Police said phone records show Sutton and 57-year-old Frank T. Jones shared an intimate relationship. Jones was found Jan. 7 in his Romulus home, southwest of Detroit. His hands were tied behind his back. A pillow case was over his head.

An autopsy revealed he had been beaten.

Jones’ son went to the home after not hearing from his father for several days.

Sutton faces a Jan. 25 preliminary examination.
