FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A judge revoked the bond set for the manslaughter trial and set bail at 1-million dollars on the new charge. That means Mills won't be able to post bail until after his re-trial for manslaughter.
Franklin County Sherriff Shannon Oliver says 63-year-old Jerry Mills has been accused of murder in the past.
Mills was found guilty of manslaughter in 2010 and sentenced to 20 years in prison for shooting a wheelchair bound Russellville man.
However, the state court of appeals overturned that decision and called for a re-trial.
This time Mills is accused of allegedly shooting and killing his roommate Jason Baker after a fight over money last Sunday.
"Sunday morning around 10 a.m. Mr. Mills called 9-1-1 to his residence and says he shot someone. He stayed on the phone with 9-1-1 until the deputies arrived and was able to secure the scene, said, Sheriff Oliver.
This case is now headed to a grand jury. WAFF is still waiting to find out when Mills will go on trial for the manslaughter charge.
