After he turned himself in this week, the man who’s been charged with killing rapper Trouble will remain in jail for the time being.

On Tuesday, June 7, Jamichael Jones appeared before a judge in Atlanta just hours after he was arrested by police. The 33-year-old waited for his hearing virtually as he sat handcuffed in a room while wearing an orange jumpsuit. Jones is currently facing felony charges of murder, aggravated assault, and home invasion. He’s also facing a battery charge, which is a misdemeanor. Although there was a bond opportunity for the misdemeanor charge, Jones was denied bond on the felony charges.

“It appears that you’re not currently on probation or parole so you’re entitled to bond on the battery,” Judge Phinia Aten told Jones. “That bond will be set in the amount of $10,000. You’ll be held on no bond, and as I stated earlier, your council will need to file a motion for a review by Superior Court for bond on your felony murder and home invasion, and bond is denied on the aggravated assault on the basis of threat to victims and witnesses.”
