Judge ups accused killer’s bond additional $100K after hearing State’s argument


SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) A Caddo Parish judge today increased the bond for a suspect accused of fatally shooting a Shreveport man over a parking spot in the Anderson Island neighborhood.

Ronald B. Parker, 65, is accused in the July 20 death of 40-year-old Roderick Gaut, who had just parked at the home of a relative, following the funeral of another relative.

Parker was arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder later that day and his bond was set at $150,000.

Today, however, Judge Charles Tutt increased that bond to $250,000, after hearing arguments from the prosecution pointing to previous violent episodes.
