The man charged in the weekend death of Tracey Baily, is being held in the Warren County Jail without bond, Sheriff Martin Pace said.
He said County Judge John Price ordered James Robert Massey, 38, held without bond after an initial appearance Monday in County Court.
Massey is charged with murder. He is accused of stabbing Bailey, 52, multiple times during an argument at Bailey’s camper trailer in Bovina.
Bailey was pronounced dead at the scene by Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey, and an autopsy was ordered.
The assault was believed to have occurred late Saturday. Pace said Massey gave deputies multiple addresses, including addresses in Braxton and the Jackson area.
He said deputies received a call about 5 a.m. Sunday that someone may have been seriously injured in an assault at Bailey’s trailer, located at 415 Tiffintown Road Lot D-4.
He said, Deputy Silento McMorris arrived to find Massey sitting in a car in front of the camper, with blood visible on his car.
When McMorris took Massey into custody, he found he was armed with a knife. After another deputy arrived, he and McMorris entered Bailey’s camper and found him lying on the floor.
According to sheriff’s office reports, there was a gathering of people at the camper, and Massey and the victim got into an argument. At some time during the argument, Bailey was stabbed.
