Donald McCorkle was ordered held today after Judge Lynn Leibovitz found probable cause for the second degree murder charge against him, according to court records.
Prosecutors say in March of this year, McCorkle chased down Bruce Parker, shot him, and killed him.
When the charge was presented to McCorkle in October, McCorkle’s attorney said her client feared Parker. The day Parker was killed, she said, McCorkle was released from a three week hospital stay for injuries he suffered in an assault. An assault where Parker was the perpetrator, she said.
McCorkle is due back in court March 23 for a status hearing.
