The teenager accused of killing the sheriff of Lowndes County over the weekend will remain in jail without bond. 18-year-old William Chase Johnson made his first court appearance today where a judge denied his request for bond.
Johnson was arrested Saturday for the shooting death of Sheriff John Williams. Witnesses said the sheriff was responding to a call at a gas station in Hayneville when Johnson shot and killed him.
After a four hour search, Johnson returned to the scene where he was taken into custody.
