JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. | A Cole County judge is considering a motion to reduce a $500,000 cash-only bond for a former Missouri Department of Corrections officer charged with first-degree murder in the death of his fiancée near Middle Grove more than two years ago.
James A. Addie, 53, was charged with first-degree murder by Monroe County Prosecuting Attorney Talley Kendrick Smith in the April 28, 2018, death of Molly Watson, 35, of Huntsville, Mo. Addie was employed as a corrections officer at the time of his arrest, according to Missouri payroll records.
