THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –   A Thomas County man charged with killing his nephew remains in jail after being denied bond.

The state claims that on April 1st, 72-year-old Byron Griner shot his 39-year-old nephew Mark Morris in the back three times.

Griner's attorney says his client was acting out of self-defense. But Thursday, Thomas County Superior Court Judge Richard Cowart cited a "substantial likelihood" that Griner, if released on bond, would intimidate witnesses and commit another offense.

The judge added if Griner is not indicted within 90 days, he will reconsider a motion for bond.
