A judge refused to lower the bond of a couple, accused in the murder of a Rowan County man, during a hearing on Tuesday.
Police say James Conn shot Timmy Riggs last year because Conn thought Riggs was responsible for his son's death. He overdosed on drugs.
Conn's wife, Katherine, stands charged with complicity.
Police arrested the couple in Florida earlier this year. They are scheduled to go on trial in August.
