    Judge sets $1 million bond for suspect in mass slaying

    A Colquitt County man accused of shooting five acquaintances and setting their house on fire in an apparent attempt to cover up the crime was on Thursday granted a $1 million bond.

    Prosecutors expect a final case report from investigators this month, and could take the case to a Colquitt County Grand Jury in December.

    Peacock has been charged with five counts of felony murder and one count of arson. Felony murder is a murder committed while in the act of committing another felony.

    Colquitt Co. grand jury hears case against accused mass killer

    A Colquitt County grand jury heard the case against accused mass killer Jeffrey Peacock on Thursday.

    It was a much anticipated day for the Moultrie community.

    It comes ten months after investigators said Peacock murdered five of his friends and set their house on fire.

    Peacock has been in the Colquitt County Jail since May of 2016. However, because it has taken months to get the case to the grand jury, the man accused of one the worst mass killings in South Georgia was issued a $1 million bond.

    District Attorney of the Southern Judicial Circuit Brad Shealy said it has taken so long for prosecutors to build their case because of the abundance of evidence during the course of the investigation.

    "There is finally progress being made as the case of a man accused of brutally murdering his five friends was presented to a grand jury," said Shealy. "The purpose of the grand jury is to simply hear a summary of the case, facts in the case, and then make a decision on whether there is efficient probable cause for it to be tried by a jury."

    If the grand jury reaches 12 votes, an indictment could be read soon.

    Motion in Peacock case against grand jury filed, hearing postponed

    The man accused of murdering his five best friends and then setting the house they were in on fire last May will no longer stand before a judge Monday, September 18.

    Three days of hearings to address Jefferey Peacock's motion to dismiss the murder indictment have been postponed.

    That motion claims the grand jury was made up of an unconstitutional composition.

    So far, no date has been announced for that hearing to be rescheduled.
