Lora Moultrie, one of two suspects charged with the April 2008 murder of Shallotte Realtor Adam Bradshaw, has been released on bond.
District Attorney Rex Gore said Moultrie was released on a $200,000 bond Tuesday morning.
Moultrie, along with Craig Bryant, were arrested and charged with Bradshaw’s murder on May 8, 2008. Bryant was released on house arrest on a $310,000 bond in November 2009.
No trial date for either suspect has been set, Gore said, but he added a date might be set as early as next week during a case management session.
In a previous interview with the Beacon, Gore said Bryant and his alleged co-conspirator, Moultrie, were given bond hearings in August 2009 because the murder would be prosecuted as a non-capital case.
According to the autopsy report, Bradshaw died from a gunshot wound to the head from a “high-velocity” firearm on April 26, 2008.
According to the Tennessee Department of Corrections, Bryant had previously served almost 10 years in prison for aggravated assault and attempted second-degree murder.
In July 1996, Bryant was indicted for attempted first-degree murder but convicted of aggravated assault and attempted second-degree murder.
Bryant was sentenced to 13 years in prison in July 1997 for the two charges to run consecutively, and was given 468 days of pre-trial jail credit, a spokesperson for the department of corrections said.
Bryant’s sentence expired in 2006.
Bryant was paroled several times during his sentence, but each time his parole was revoked.
