A judge has denied bond for the man charged with shooting and killing an Aiken public safety officer on Saturday.
The Associated Press reported that a magistrate ordered 26-year-old Joshua Tremaine Jones to remain in jail and set his bond at $10,000 on a weapons charge on Monday. The judge scheduled the next hearing for March 9.
Authorities say they found Jones’ pregnant girlfriend 21-year-old Cayce Vice dead in her apartment shortly after Master Corporal Sandra Rogers was fatally shot. They believe Jones killed his girlfriend, and then shot Rogers later. Rogers was the second Aiken police officer to be killed by shooting this month.
The suspect’s father, James Jones, told reporters that his son has mental problems.
