Nineteen-year-old Christopher Cox, who has been indicted for first degree murder, was denied bond yesterday by Judge Thomas Evans III.

Calhoun prosecutor Matt Minney opposed bonding Cox, with several witnesses being called during the hearing. Cox has been charged in the shooting and stabbing murder of Russell Metz. Cox has pled not guilty to the charge.

Metz's body was discovered in a cabin a short distance off U. S. 33-119 near the Calhoun-Roane line. Cox is being held in Central Regional Jail waiting trial.

Grantsville resident Adam Parsons, 24, also appeared in court seeking bond.

Parson's request for bond was withdrawn after a plea agreement moved forward.

Parsons had pled not guilty after being indicted for the malicious wounding of a six-year-old Mt. Zion boy and his four-year-old twin brothers.

He is currently in Central Regional Jail.

The court posted $10,000 bond for Jimmy Keener, who has been charged with DUI-3rd offense.

John Hickman, who has been indicated on drug charges, pled not guilty during an arraignment hearing yesterday.

Judge Evans denied motions made by Parkersburg attorney George Cosenza on behalf of Eric Marks during a supression hearing. Marks is facing DUI charges.
