Original bond surrendered for Lauderdale County murder suspect

LAUDERDALE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI - A man charged with the murder of a Lauderdale County woman has had his original bond surrendered.

Weaver was arrested Wednesday after posting bond and has been charged with receiving stolen property and possession of methamphetamine, according to WTOK.

Just two days after being re-arrested, Kenneth Brian Weaver will have to pay more money to make bond again.

His original bond was $250,000, and has now increased to $425,000.

Earlier reports:

The body of the 25-year-old was found near a pond in Collinsville. Mullett had disappeared the previous weekend.

WTOK reported that Mullet was last seen with her boyfriend leaving the Golden Moon Casino in Philadelphia. 

Mullett died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Lauderdale County Coroner Clayton Cobler says authorities were not able to immediately determine Mullett's cause of death when she was found because of the state of her body.

"I put time of death approximately two o'clock in the morning on Saturday. Shortly after that, the body was placed in the water," Cobler said. "Don't know if she was killed there, killed somewhere else and brought there, or what, but she had been in the water for a good while."

Even though Mullett's family had identified her, that was made positive by obtaining her dental records from Bogalusa, Louisiana.

According to Lauderdale Co. Sheriff Billy Sollie, this is not the first time Weaver has had a run in with the law. WTOK reported that Weaver had several charges dating back to 2004, most for DUIS and one charge for domestic violence.

According to Mullet's Facebook page, she was a graduate of North East Jones High School.
