A judge has set bond for a man accused of killing a Knox County mother.
Judge Eugene Eblen set bond for Shawn Smoot at $250-thousand dollars. He is ordered to report to the state probation office in Kingston twice a month. He must also sign a waiver of extradition form, meaning that if he does leave the state while on probation, he can be brought back to Tennessee immediately if caught.
He's charged with first degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Brooke Morris. She was found shot to death on a Roane County road in October of last year. Smoot was her former employer, and Morris claimed in an order of protection that they had an affair.
Earlier this summer, Smoot failed to show up for an arraignment after he was indicted.
He was arested in Mississippi, where officials say he was found with clothing, camping gear, and a loaded gun in his car.
At a bond hearing last week, prosecutors argued that Smoot was a flight risk.
