Accused Kendrick killer gets bond.

Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill granted a $100,000 bond to Loren Shell-Blackwell.  A Hinds County grand jury indicted her and Walter Lee Young for capital murder in the death of 81 year-old Lee Kendrick last October. Judge Weill's order states:

This cause came on for consideration by the Court on the Defendant's Motion to Reduce Bond on the charge(s) of Capital Murder (16-0-146-01) and Auto Theft (16-0-146-02). Having thoroughly considered the Defendant's motion, the Court finds that the motion is well-taken and should be GRANTED, as the Defendant is currently pregnant. The Court may reconsider the issue of bond upon the birth of the Defendant's child.

 Kendrick was murdered at the Edgewood Apartments in a vacant unit.  JPD accused Blackwell of luring Kendrick to the apartment after she met him in Pearl at Romantic Adventures.  She was arrested and charged last October.  County Court Judge Melvin Priester, Sr. allowed her to remain free on house arrest and a $1,000 bond, since she was pregnant, over the objections of prosecutors   Young is the cousin of her boyfriend.  Earlier post about hearing, murder, and copy of transcript.

Blackwell's arraignment was held yesterday.  Judge Weill revoked her bond in April and she is currently incarcerated at the Hinds County Detention Center in Jackson.  She is still in custody at the Hinds County Detention Center.

Kingfish note: Did Blackwell get pregnant again?  She was free for several months until Judge Weill revoked her bond in April.  Now Judge Weill is granting bond because she is pregnant. Huh?

Someone needs to yank her ovaries out.

Musta got knocked again after she whelped the last one. Old trick; less expensive to let her have it while in custody; probably going to fostercare anyway.

So who is STOOPID enough to pay that bond?

Bond is solely meant to ensure appearance in court. It cannot be used to punish someone or to hold them because they may be guilty of something. The person on bond is presumed innocent.

12:45, bond should not be reduced just because a woman is pregnant, especially if it is on a permanent basis.
Bond should depend on the crime. The bond for capital murder should be high. It is not punishment if the people do not have the money to bond out.

'Bond cannot be used to punish or hold them because they may be guilty'? Tell that to Dale Danks and Madison County where bond is typically over a million fucking bucks.

Was the arraignment on July 27th or June 24th as shown on the order?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
