News Adam Hensley given $200,000 bond

A Macon County man charged with murder was given a $200,000 bond last Wednesday.

"In the criminal justice system, we have judges and magistrates who are required to set the bonds of defendants,” Sheriff Robbie Holland said of the bond. “While I may or may not agree with the amount set, the fact still remains that bonds are entirely at the discretion of the judicial officials."

Until Wednesday, Adam Hensley was being held without bond for first degree murder at the Macon County Detention Center. Hensley was arrested last week after an altercation at Kirkland Road residence resulted in the death of Larry Nelson Wilt, 31. When Macon County Sheriff Officers arrived on scene, Hensely claimed that Wilt’s injuries were a result of self-defense.

Hensley, who also sustained serious injuries during the incident, remains in the Macon County Detention Center as of Tuesday afternoon.
