Wesly Pryor went before Circuit Judge Bynum Gibson, Wednesday morning, on the charges of Capital Murder, Aggravated Residential Burglary, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm Possessed in a Violent Crime.
During the hearing, where bail bonds are usually set, the court confirmed that Capital Murder is a “non-bondable charge”, so Pryor will remain in jail, without bond, until court is held in the case.
Just before 8 pm, Sunday night, the Drew County Sheriff Dept. responded to a 911 call, reporting a shooting victim being found in a Drew County residence
Upon arrival deputies found 56 year old, Charles Hewitt, lying on the floor of his home suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Hewitt was pronounced dead at the scene.
Information that was obtained by authorities led to the arrest of Jerry “Wesley” Pryor Jr., age 34 of Monticello.
It is believed that Pryor went to Hewitt’s home, kicked in the front door, and shot him in the chest.
Pryor is being held at the Drew County Detention Facility.
