Beulaville Murder Suspect Released On Bond

A man in jail for nearly six weeks on a murder charge is now out on bond.

Max Turner is accused of the February 5th shooting death of Jaime Fountain, who was shot in the heart while sitting in the passenger's seat of Lisa Turner's vehicle in Beulaville.

Turner was released over the weekend from the Duplin County jail.

Last week a Superior Court judge set Turner's bond at $750,000 and he's under 24-hour electronic house arrest. As part of his bond, the man cannot have any contact with the victim's family, and can't be around any firearms.

Max Turner is accused of the February 5th shooting death of Jaime Fountain, who was shot in the heart while sitting in the passenger's seat of Lisa Turner's vehicle in Beulaville.

Last month a district court judge denied bond for the man, but today he went before a superior court judge who set tight conditions for Turner's release.

Bond for the man was set at $750,000, and he would be under 24-hour electronic house arrest, cannot have any contact with the victim's family, and can't be around any firearms.

Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Douglas Parsons, says Turner can be at his house, office and farm--which are all adjacent properties, seek necessary medical care, as well as visit his attorney and attend court hearings.

At this point, Turner remains in custody.
