The co-defendant in the double-homicide of two Fort Stewart soldiers was denied bond in court Monday.

Spec. Phillip Thompson is charged with two counts of party to the crime of murder for his alleged role in the shooting deaths of Spec. Marquez Brown and Pvt. Malika Jackson on March 5. The incident occurred at Brown’s townhome on Rebecca Street in Hinesville.

Last week, bond was also denied for Sgt. Shaquille Deion Craig, the man who allegedly shot both men to death.

Hinesville Police Department Detective Jeff Lui testified at Monday’s bond hearing, saying Thompson drove Craig to the townhome and was inside Brown’s residence when Craig committed the murders.
