Bond reduced in acid killing case

Judge Tommy Wilson substantially reduced the bond of a man charged with fatally shooting another after they ingested hallucinogenic drugs July 14. The new bond for Joshua James Cox, 24, was set at $1 million Dec. 2, down from the $5 million bond Judge Wilson set in the case Oct. 21. Cox told officers he and Donald Terrell Clark had used acid and smoked marijuana July 14 when Clark turned into a zombie. Cox allegedly retrieved a Glock pistol from his car and shot Clark to death. District attorney Richard Milam argued that Cox, if released, would be a flight risk and a threat to Clark’s widow and children who live not far from Cox’s parents. Public defender Doug Smith countered that Clark had sold drugs to Cox the day of the killing and had previous convictions for dealing drugs.
