Earlier this week we reported that James Timothy Hall of Winchester shot and killed his estranged wife in Bedford County on Saturday morning.
Police say Kristal L. Hall, 46, of 207 Franklin Park in Winchester, died from one shot to the head from a 9 mm handgun. Hall was staying at a friend’s house on State Highway 64 East just past the Fairfield Pike intersection.
James Timothy Hall was in court this week with his defense attorneys. Bryan Hoss and Stevie Phillips of Chattanooga called his alleged actions “a crime of passion.” The Franklin County man was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation.
His bond set at $750,000 by General Sessions Judge Charles Rich. A preliminary hearing is set for May 28.
Hall is accused of first degree murder, burglary and reckless endangerment.
