JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The surviving suspect in the Monday, September 28 stand-off that left one dead and another wounded appears via closed-circuit in a Jonesboro court.

Phillip Suftin appeared through Web cam to speak to Circuit Judge Keith Blackmon. Suftin was appearing on a violation of probation charge, which carries a penalty of up to 60 additional months supervised probation, according to Judge Blackmon.

Suftin's bond was set at $125,000. In addition, Judge Blackmon appointed a public defender for Suftin and set his next court date for October 30th.

Phillip Suftin is one of two the Craighead County Sheriff's Department says opened fire on deputies during a parole check. This was said to have then resulted in a standoff that ended with Raymond Floyd killed and Suftin wounded.
