JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Joshua Adams, the Hinds County Deputy charged with murder in the death of 25-year-old Justin Griffin, had his bond set at $50,000 Friday, but Judge Winston Kidd set some conditions. Among them are house arrest with a curfew. No contact with victims family or witnesses.

Adams posted bond late Friday evening, and has been released. His case will be presented to the next Hinds County Grand Jury.
