DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The bond for a capital murder suspect accused of killing a woman in 2018 has been revoked.
On the morning of Sunday, February 5, Dothan Police arrested Jamie Townes who was out on bond for a capital murder charge, and charged him with robbery.
Townes is accused of killing Breunia Jennings in March of 2018.
According to jail records, police arrested and charged Townes with third-degree robbery and he was transferred to the Houston County Jail.
On the same day as latest his arrest, Houston County District Attorney Russ Goodman requested his $350,000 be revoked and Circuit Judge Todd Derrick granted the motion. No new bond has been issued.
Townes was originally released on bond for his capital murder charge in July of 2021. He is set to have a hearing for his capital murder case in March and his jury trial is set for June.
When Townes was released on bond in 2021 he was required to wear an ankle monitor and last year the prosecutors in the case asked to judge to revoke Townes’ bond because they feel he was going against the bond agreement and that according to Townes’ ankle monitor, he was in Florida. The judge denied the request to revoke the bond.
In August of last year, Townes’ attorney asked the judge if Townes could travel across state lines to Atlanta for a preplanned vacation, and that request was approved by the judge.
