-A A +A

Son of Owen County sheriff will likely face July trial for 2012 killing

By Molly Haines

A Franklin County Circuit Judge has declined to lower a $500,000 full-cash bond for one of two Owen County men accused of murdering a Frankfort man last spring.
Joshua Hammond, 31, is being held at the Franklin County Regional Jail but a separate bond hearing will be scheduled sometime in the next few weeks, according to reports.
Hammond, along with David Bruce II, 44, also of Owen County and James Simons, 35, of Grant County, are each being charged with murder, first-degree assault, first-degree robbery and tampering with physical evidence.
