A Jones County man facing a murder charge was granted bond in Superior Court last week.

James Parker was given a $100,000 bond by Superior Court Judge Trent Brown Feb. 27. The conditions of the bond include no violations of federal, state, or local ordinances, no alcohol or drugs, and no firearms.

Additionally, Parker is not to leave his home except for traveling to work, church, medical appointments, or court appearances.

The defendant made bond and was released the same day it was granted.

According to a story about Parker’s arrest in The Jones County News, he was taken into custody by the Jones County Sheriff’s Department Feb. 11 and charged with murder.

Deputies responded to a 911 call at approximately 7 a.m. from a neighbor of Parker’s, reporting that there had been an incident at the defendant’s residence on Stallings Road. When deputies arrived at the scene, Parker was still there and looked like he had been in a fight. He directed the officers into the home where they found 61-year-old Alan Helmuth dead.
