A man believed to be the suspected shooter that led to a lengthy standoff with authorities on Friday appeared before Judge Brad Paisley in the Christian County courthouse Monday morning.

The suspect, Dennis Adams, is facing two counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting his wife Jolene Adams Friday morning at 516 West Avenue. In addition to the charges, bail for Adams was set for 2-million dollars and bond set at 200-thousand dollars.

Adams is set to appear in court again on Thursday when Christian County State's Attorney Tom Finks will request that bail be denied. Adams is being represented by public defender Mike Havera.

Jolene Adams also appeared at the pretrial hearing Monday morning. Adams was released from the hospital Friday afternoon after receiving treatment for gunshot wounds to shoulder and head.
