HILLSVILLE — A 26-year-old woman charged in connection with a November 2007 fatal double shooting in Fancy Gap was back in the New River Valley Regional Jail on Wednesday, after being accused of violating the terms of her bond.
A Nov. 13 shooting at 268 Frog Spur Road left George Adam Fulton, 19, and Dustin Bond, 17, dead — each from a shotgun wound to the head.
Clinton Eric Burke, 21, of Hillsville faces two murder charges and two counts of using a firearm in the incident.
Carroll deputies also charged Amanda Payne of Hillsville with two counts of conspiring to commit murder and two counts of first-degree murder as a principal in the second degree.
Payne was free on $100,000 bond, with home electronic monitoring while awaiting trial in her case.
(Burke is being held at the New River Valley Regional Jail without bond.)
Carroll Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court issued a warrant for Payne on Monday, based on information from New River Community Corrections, an agency responsible for her pre-trial supervision, according to Commonwealth’s Attorney Greg Goad.
Community correction officials alleged that Payne had “violated the terms of her home electronic monitoring 11 times,” Goad said.
That was on top of similar allegations that the agency had already made, the prosecutor noted. Called before a magistrate that time, Payne was released on an additional $5,000 bond.
Payne went before the court Wednesday, and she was ordered held without bond.
Both of Payne’s parents testified that they were with her at home when the electronic monitor went off, Goad said. Defense attorney Dwight Compton maintained that the unit was malfunctioning.
“Jennifer Brewster from New River Community Corrections testified that she was not aware of any malfunctions of the unit,” the prosecutor said.
“What’s odd is the violations were only a few minutes at a time,” Goad said. “It’s not like she was gone for hours at a time — it was minutes.”
