The suspect in last week’s Taylorville shooting appeared at the Christian County Courthouse Thursday morning.

58 year-old Dennis Adams appeared before Judge Brad Paisley Thursday as the Christian County State’s Attorney’s office made a motion to have bail for Adams denied. After some deliberation and a brief hearing, Paisley did decide to judge in favor of the state’s attorney’s office and bail will be denied for Adams.

Adams, who is facing two counts of attempted murder in the first degree, is set to appear in court again on September 2nd, when the court will hear more motions from the defense and prosecution. Adams will have another preliminary hearing as well, and that is scheduled for September 20th at 10:00 a.m.

Adams is accused of attempted murder after he allegedly shot his wife, Jolene Adams, three times last Friday at her residence at 516 West Avenue in Taylorville. Jolene Adams sustained three gunshot wounds from a 22-caliber hand gun.
