VAIDEN-Carroll County Justice Court Judge Tinesha Erve-Earnest set bond at $1.2 million for Thomas Perry III. Bond, who faces a First Degree Murder charge in the death of his 6-year-old half-brother Orlando "King" Pittman.

The bond hearing took place at the teenagers first court appearance Tuesday.

Perry faces additional charges of Arson and Felony Animal Cruelty.

According to a press release from the Carroll County Sheriff:

"An initial appearance will be scheduled as soon as possible in the case. At this time, Perry remains in the Carroll Montgomery Regional Correctional Facility with no bond set."
