Floyd County Murder Case Goes to Grand Jury

Investigators presented their evidence against a man facing murder charges in Floyd County.

Last week police found, Rodney Mullins, shot to death outside a home in the Bypro community. Police arrested Tyler Shehan. At Tuesday's hearing, investigators explained how the two men knew each other.

The judge did amend Shehan's bond to 50,000 dollars on conditions of GPS home incarceration in Jefferson County, which is where Shehan is from and his parents currently live.

Based on what he heard the judge kept the murder charge and did decide there is enough evidence to send this case to the grand jury.

In addition to the murder charge, Shehan is also facing four counts of wanton endangerment. Officials say those charges are for other people in the vicinity of the shooting...including the teenager and a six-month-old baby.
