Alleged meth killer gets $1 million bond

(from the 5.19.09 print edition of the herald-gazette) A man charged with murder in a drug deal gone bad was granted a $1 million bond following a hearing in Lamar superior court May 15. Judge Tommy Wilson granted the bond for 28-year-old Ronald Smith. Smith is charged with shooting his alleged meth supplier in the face with a high-powered rifle on January 30. The victim, 56-year-old Charles Graves Adams, died instantly at the scene of the Grove Street shooting. ’˜If he posts bond, which is unlikely, Smith must wear an ankle monitor and remain inside his home while free,’ district attorney Richard Milam said. Milam noted state law requires the court to set a bond for any suspect who has been in jail for 90 days without their case going to a grand jury. Milam said he expects Smith’s case to be presented to the June term Lamar grand jury. Crime lab delays have been an issue in the presentment, Milam added.
