BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Accused killer Robert Bond is back in Bossier Parish, 1 month after police say his estranged wife was murdered, her body dumped in a remote wooded area near Bayou Dorcheat in Webster Parish.
Bond, 53, was released from the Mississippi hospital Thursday morning, where he has been recovering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
He is charged 2nd degree murder in the death of 46-year-old Ann Bond.
Upon his release from the hospital, Bond waived extradition and arrived at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility in Plain Dealing Thursday night just before 9 p.m., where he will be booked and held on $1,000,000 bond.
"Robbie" Bond's return to Louisiana comes 3 weeks after investigators confirmed that charred remains found in Webster Parish on November 18 were those of Annie Bond.
That discovery was made 4 days after Annie Bond didn't show up for work and was reported missing. Police found Robert Bond sleeping in the backseat of his truck at a rest stop along I-10 in southern Mississippi the following morning. They say he shot himself with a .22 caliber handgun as officers approached.
A memorial celebrating Annie Bond's life is set for Friday Dec. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Grace Community Methodist Church, 9400 Ellerbe Road in Shreveport.
According to information provided by her family, "All are welcome and invited to attend as we sing, worship and give thanks for her in our lives."
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to either of Annie's favorite organizations in her name.
