JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - According to Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd, a Jackson County man was in custody in connection with a shooting on County Road 323 early Sunday.
Cordra Reynolds, 38, of Diaz was arrested on suspicion of attempting to commit first-degree murder and a failure to appear misdemeanor warrant. Boyd said deputies got a call around 5 a.m. Sunday from a hospital about a woman who received a gunshot wound to the head.
The woman, who sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound, was released from the hospital and gave a statement to authorities, which led to Reynolds' arrest, Boyd said.
She told deputies her boyfriend, Reynolds, came to her home intoxicated and started a fight with her. According to court documents, she accused Reynolds of hitting her in the head and legs along with choking her.
He then put a pistol up to her head and pulled the trigger, according to the probable cause affidavit.
When interviewed by authorities, Reynolds told them he and his girlfriend did have a physical altercation. He also said, "he had his pistol and it accidentally discharged."
When Reynolds asked for a bond reduction, Judge David Boling said he was a "risk to the community."
Reynolds is currently being held in the Craighead County Detention Center on a $250,000 bond.
His next court date was scheduled for May 25.
