CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Judge Steven Nixon has denied bond for the man charged in the weekend shooting death of a 21-year-old Jackson man in Clinton.

Tommy Bass, 31, of Clinton, has been charged with murder in the death of Mark Nichols. He's being held in the Hinds County Detention Center and is scheduled to be in court June 5.

Clinton Police Department Interim Chief Mike Warren said it appears a disagreement over a woman may have led to Nichols' death.

Nichols' body was found around 7 p.m. Saturday on the side of Clinton-Tinnon Road at Daniel Drive. After a preliminary autopsy, Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham Stewart found that Nichols suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Warren said Nichols and Bass had a disagreement over a woman late Friday night or early Saturday morning when they believe the homicide occurred. Police believe Nichols was killed in the area where his body was found. Bass lives a few houses away from the scene. 

Warren said the female companion of Nichols was searching for him and had contacted police around the time he was found. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is assisting the Clinton Police Department.

Clinton has had only two homicides in the last four years.

CPD is not searching for any other suspects in the case.
