Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cau8se to charge Marquise Jefferson, 24, with first-degree battery, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and unauthorized use of the property to facilitate a crime.

During the court hearing, Deputy Prosecutor MIrcha King described the information that led to Jefferson’s arrest.

King said police later interviewed Jefferson’s finance who said she had picked up Jefferson and said she had thrown the gun in the Arkansas River.

Jefferson had a prior conviction for aggravated robbery and was sentenced to prison but that sentence was suspended.

King said the bond request was because the case may turn into a homicide because the shooting victim was struggling and “took a turn for the worse last (Wednesday) night.”

Jefferson was ordered to have no contact with the victim until the case is settled.
