AMORY, Miss. (AP) - Bond has been set at $300,000 for Christopher Lee Thompson on a charge of murder related to the beating death of an Amory man.

The 46-year-old Thompson, himself an Amory resident, was arrested Sunday and charged Monday with the murder of Tommy Harlow.

Bond was set Tuesday by Monroe County Justice Court Judge Adrian Haynes.

Sheriff Cecil Cantrell says the 50-year-old Harlow was beaten at his sister’s residence in Hamilton. Harlow died after midnight Sunday.

Cantrell says the two mean had been arguing in the early hours of Sunday.

It was unclear whether Thompson has an attorney.
