A judge issued three suspects accused of beating and stabbing an 86-year-old man to be held under no bond.
DeAngelo Smith, Yazmine Munnerlyn and Carlos Nottingham appeared in Judge George Hardesty’s courtroom, all appearing for bond hearings.
Several family members of the suspects were present in court but did not want to talk on camera.
The nephew of victim Carrol Jordan was also in court and spoke to FOX10 News after the hearing. Donald Johnson said Jordan still isn’t able to talk, but he does squeeze his family member’s hands indicating he hears them talking.
Assistant District Attorney Jo Beth Murphree revealed in court Smith had gone in the victim’s home before to use the telephone. Murphree said Smith’s grandmother lives across the street from the victim.
Police said the three entered Jordan’s home Monday, January 27. Investigators said they beat Jordan and stabbed him multiple times. Police said the suspects stole a 42-inch television from the home, which was recovered after the suspects dropped it while fleeing the home.
Murphree said in court all three suspects had criminal arrest histories. All three are charged with attempted murder and burglary in regards to the beating of Jordan.
