Bond Denied for Murder Suspect

A Jasper County man accused of killing his mother-in-law and beating his wife went before a judge today. A circuit court judge denied Leonard Lovette, Jr., bond.

Police say Lovette broke into his mother-in-law's home, where his wife was staying. He shot his mother-in-law, Patsy Grant, twice and killed her, then beat his wife, Charlene Lovette, with the gun.

All this happened while he was out on bond for criminal domestic violence for beating his wife.

Today, the judge sentenced Lovette to three years for violating his probation.
