(WJBF) – Three former Washington county deputies were in court Tuesday for their bond hearings.
Henry Copeland, Michael Howell and Rhett Scott are charged with murder, false imprisonment and reckless conduct in connection with the tasing death of Eurie Martin.
Each were granted the same bond amount. Either $75-thousand in cash or $150-thousand dollars in property.
Martin died over the summer while in police custody.
In July of this year, investigators say Martin was walking from his home in Milledgeville to his family’s home in Sandersville.
The officers got a call for a suspicious person, which is what brought them to Martin.
Investigators say the officers tased him as part of their arrest and he died shortly afterwards.
