posts $50K bond
RIPLEY - Chad Booker is out on $50,000 bond after a hearing in circuit court of Tippah County late last week that reduced it from $100,000.
Booker, 25, a student at Northeast Community College, is accused of killing David White, a neighbor. Booker's attorney, Tony Farese of Booneville, said his client was test-driving a Ford Mustang down a road when White, 61, flagged him down and told him to slow down. A fight ensued.
A preliminary autopsy report stated White died of a cerebral hemorrhage consistent with being hit with a fist.
Funeral services for White were Friday.
