Bond has been denied to a Morton man charged with a May murder.

Scott County Justice Court Judge Robert Wilkerson this week also ordered that the case against Timothy Joseph Patterson be sent to the next grand jury.

The 22-year-old Patterson has been charged in the shooting death of 28-year-old Michael Guy of Morton.

Sheriff's Department Capt. Willie Anderson testified that the shooting occurred at a home in Morton where Patterson and others were watching a fight on television.

Anderson says Patterson got hold of the gun at some point and Guy was shot repeatedly.

He says Patterson was arrested by deputies responding to a 911 call.
