UCA Shooting Suspect Denied Bond

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A judge denied bond for one of the suspects in the fatal shootings of two students on the University of Central Arkansas campus. Nineteen-year-old Kelcey Perry faces two counts of capital murder for the Oct. 26 shootings.

Perry and the other three other defendants were initially ordered held without bond, but Circuit Judge Charles "Ed" Clawson ruled that they could revisit the issue later. On Friday, Clawson heard Perry's request for bond.

Perry's attorney argued that Perry had no prior felony convictions and is a longtime Faulkner County resident with family in the community. The defendants are accused in the slayings of 18-year-old Ryan Henderson of Little Rock and 19-year-old Chavares Block.

Also charged are 19-year-old Kawin Brockman of Conway, 20-year-old Mario Toney of Little Rock and 20-year-old Brandon Wade of Lake Village. --- Information from: Log Cabin Democrat, http://www.thecabin.net
