APPLING CO., GA (WTOC) -

New developments have come out in the brutal murder case of 28-year-old Mandy Courson. 

WTOC has learned that Jonathan Courson, the husband and primary suspect in Mandy's murder, may be in Superior Court later this week, according to Courson's attorney, Deen Strickland. 

Strickland says he plans to file a number of motions Monday, including a petition for bond and a motion to demand a preliminary hearing with Superior Court as soon as possible. 

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations arrested Jonathan Courson after they say he faked a home invasion, claiming two men broke in to their home, tied the couple up and later killed his wife.

Courson denies he murdered his wife, Mandy. 

The house, located off of Corey Street just outside of Baxley, had been taped off while detectives investigated the crime scene. Strickland says the defense team investigators did not receive access to the home until late last week.
