MARION, Ark. -- A judge Monday cited evidence against a parolee accused of killing a woman during a carjacking in setting a $1 million bond.

Twenty-two-year-old Corey Andre Mosley is charged with capital murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping and arson in the death of 67-year-old Althia Wheeler of West Memphis.

Mosley is ineligible for bond on the capital murder count.

At Mosley's arraignment today, West Memphis District Judge William ``Pal'' Rainey set bond at $1 million on the assault, kidnapping and arson charges. The judge took note of the list of the offenses and said he thinks the likelihood of Mosley being convicted is -- quote -- ``very high.''

Wheeler was abducted Wednesday night as she left work at a West Memphis Wal-Mart store. Her body was found in the trunk of her car, which had been set afire. Mosely was released on parole in November 2002 for a previous attemped carjacking.
