Bond denied for man accused of killing deputy

-A A +A

 

Dewayne Ship, the man accused of murdering Marion County Sheriff's Deputy Anthony Rakes, appeared in court again Thursday.

Marion Circuit Judge Dan Kelly determined that Shipp is not entitled to a bond in this case after hearing testimony from a Kentucky State Police detective.

According to the judge's notes, the detective testified that Rakes called in the tags on the vehicle on the night of the shooting, and, he reported 47 seconds later that shots were fired.

Shipp was stopped in Campbellsville driving the same vehicle that Rakes had reported. A .22 revolver with three spent casings was found in Shipp's pocket, and Shipp made statements indicating he shot an officer but did not mean to hurt him, according to the judge’s notes on the detective's testimony.

A discovery conference has been scheduled for Feb. 7 in both Shipp's murder case and his case for possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
