The Bossier man accused of killing his wife, and then trying to kill himself, went before a judge in Bossier District Court this morning.
Robert Bond, who was transported Thursday from a Mississippi hospital to Bossier Parish Maximum Security at Plain Dealing, told District Judge Jeff Cox, that he could not afford an attorney. Cox appointed the Bossier Parish indigent defender’s office to represent Bond, but did not set another court date.
Bond is charged with 2nd degree murder in the November death of his wife, Ann Bond, after leaving her charred remains in Webster Parish and absconding to Mississippi.
Law enforcement tracked Bond and found him around midnight Nov. 15 in his truck near a rest stop in Gautier, Miss. When officers approached, Bond pulled out a gun and shot himself in the head.
Bond has been recovering from that gunshot wound at Singing River Hospital in Pascagoula, Miss. until his extradition to Bossier Parish Thursday.
