Bond has been denied for Capital Murder Suspect Jeffery Wilcox Jr., Wilcox made an initial appearance via video conference before Cherokee County District Court Judge Wes Mobley on Thursday morning.
Although Judge Mobley denied bond on the charges of Capital Murder, he did set a $250,000 bond for the 1st Degree Kidnapping charge.
Wilcox had been on the run since Sunday after he shot and killed 47 year old Daniel Andrews and 48 year old Letitia Andrews at their home on County Road 19 and then kidnapped his wife Chasidy Wilcox.
The victims in the case are the mother and step-father of Chasidy. Wilcox was taken into custody in the Sheriff’s Office parking lot on Tuesday afternoon after his 2011 Chevy Silverado was spotted on West Main Street by Centre Police near the Courthouse, Chasidy was found inside the truck safe and physically unharmed.
At this point, the murders appear to have been the result of a “domestic dispute”. Last year, the couple filed for divorce – and Chasidy Wilcox had filed for a protective order, which was denied, in September of last year.
According to court documents that divorce case was dismissed in May of this year, after the two reconciled.
Chasidy Wilcox had been living with the Andrews’ while separated from her husband; their children were in the home when the murders took place.
Wilcox remains in the Cherokee County Detention Center.
