Judge denies bond for suspect accused of killing ex-girlfriend in Hephzibah


#UPDATE | A Richmond County Judge denied bond for the man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend.

Jaden Ross went before Judge Neal Dickert via video for his bond hearing Friday morning.

Richmond County District Attorney Jared Williams stated Ross stood over Brenleigh Kitchens “like an executioner”.

Though Kitchens grabbed a kitchen knife to protect herself from Ross, D.A. Williams said this was an act of malice, not self defense because he moved toward her for the final shot.

The incident happened on April 28th, Kitchens died the next day.
