CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) - Antonio Taylor the man accused of shooting Ballwin police officer Mike Flamion is now being held on a million dollar cash only bond.

A prosecutor and Taylor’s two public defenders appeared in court Monday.

The prosecution asked the judge to double the current bond saying the extent of Flamion's injuries and the belief that Taylor has no strong ties to the St. Louis area justified an increased bond.

The defense objected to the motion, but the judge granted the bond increase.
