Shooting suspects denied bond

Posted June 14, 2005

Thomasville- A judge has denied bond for two men suspected in a deadly home invasion in Thomasville.

     Alfred Jones and Marcus Samuel will remain behind bars until trial. They're accused of shooting a pregnant woman in the stomach and knee early Saturday morning. They're charged with feticide, burglary, armed robbery, kidnapping, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. They're also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Police say that's why it's so important to keep Jones and Samuel in jail. "From a police perspective, the suspects are a danger to society. I mean, two people have been injured and one unborn child has been lost. So it's very important from the safety standpoint," says TPD Sergeant Rachelle Denmark.

     Police say Jones and Samuel kept the woman and her boyfriend, Ricardo Mitchell, hostage in this house for 45 minutes. Mitchell was beaten repeatedly before his girlfriend was shot. She is expected to make a full recovery.
