JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Bond has been set for the Jones County man accused of terrorizing his girlfriend for 24 hours.
Jerome Justin Boe, 40 was in court Monday, where his bond is set at $10,000 by Jones County Justice Court Judge Howell Beech.
On April 2, a woman called the Jones County Sheriff's Department stating she had been beaten up by Boe, who was her boyfriend and father of her child. According to authorities, she reported that the abuse began the day before when she took the baby to Boe's residence.

Shortly after arriving, an argument became physical and violent.
In a statement released by Jones County authorities, she reported that Boe hit her, kicked her and held a knife to her throat, threatening to kill her.

The victim said the abuse continued for over 24 hours.

According to the statement, someone came to the home and realized what was happening and threatened to call the sheriff's department at which time Boe fled the house.

The JCSD then issued a warrant for Boe's arrest.
Overnight on April 7, Boe was found in Forrest County beaten, naked and screaming for help in a ditch on Peps Point Road when a woman heard her dog barking in the front yard.

She states that she found Boe naked in the ditch, screaming for help.

After Forrest County deputies arrived, Boe stated that he was in a vehicle with people and was unaware they were going to turn him in for a reward.
Boe remains housed in the Jones County Jail.
