Bond was set Thursday at $1.5 million for a man charged with aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder in connection to a Sunday shooting in Fostoria.
Calvin Dixson, 37, appeared in Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff's courtroom Thursday afternoon on charges of aggravated murder, a special felony, and attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony.
An initial case in Fostoria Municipal Court charging him with aggravated murder was dismissed Thursday, a court spokeswoman from Fostoria Municipal Court said.

Dixson is accused of shooting and killing Fostoria resident Lisa Stowers, 50, and seriously injuring her daughter, Tyeesha Ferguson, 36.
Dixson was arrested Monday in Cleveland after he fled from the scene of the shooting on Bannister Street Sunday afternoon. Seneca County Prosecutor Derek DeVine said Thursday during Dixson's hearing that Dixson fled on foot from police in Cleveland and was apprehended in an attic.
DeVine also said Thursday that Ferguson had a civil protection order against Dixson at the time of the shooting.
If convicted of the charges, Dixson could face life in prison without parole, according to his indictment.
He is scheduled to appear again in court Aug. 13 for an arraignment.
