Bennington Township – A mid-Michigan man was arraigned in the slaying of a man who last was seen on Christmas Eve.

Mark Latunski, 50, appeared Monday via video in 66th District Court in Corunna on murder and mutilation of a body charges.

Family members reported Kevin Bacon, 25, of Swartz Creek near Flint, missing when he didn’t show up for breakfast on Christmas Day. Bacon’s roommate told that Bacon was going to see a man he had met on Grindr, a dating app.

Bacon’s car was found in Clayton Township, near Flint. His body was found Saturday in a home in Bennington Township, about 80 miles (128 kilometers) northwest of Detroit.

Latunski was being held without bond and was appointed an attorney. His preliminary examination is scheduled on Jan. 8, followed by a Jan. 14 pretrial hearing.
