FOREST, Miss. (AP) - Bond has been denied for a Morton man charged with murder in the a May slaying. Scott County Justice Court Judge Robert Wilkerson this week also ordered that the case against Timothy Joseph Patterson be sent to the next grand jury.
The 22-year-old Patterson has been charged in the shooting death of 28-year-old Michael Guy of Morton. Sheriff's Department Capt. Willie Anderson testified that the shooting occurred at a home in Morton where Patterson and others were watching a fight on television.
Anderson says Patterson got hold of the gun at some point and Guy was shot repeatedly. He says Patterson was arrested by deputies responding to a 911 call.
