Judge Sets Bond In Dismemberment Murder Case 5-23-2011

Carman Jenkins may soon be getting out of her orange jumpsuit, despite accusations of killing Mekole Harris and cutting up her body back in April 2008.
"Her body parts were found in various locations in trash bags," Lisa Perry, Mekole Harris' sister said.
During a bond hearing Monday morning, Perry asked a judge to keep Jenkins in jail.
"I think she's a threat to the community and I think she's a flight risk because her life is on the table," she said.
Perry talked about how her sister was killed and accused Carman Jenkins and Carman's husband, Clarence, of cutting up her sister to use as a threat to someone else because that person owed them money.
"Her body had been dismembered, cut-up, her feet, her hands, her toes, from what we know her ears," she told the judge.
A judge set a $100,000 bond after the solicitor told him the former solicitor made a deal with Jenkins. The deal was Jenkins would lead them to the rest of Harris' body, in return, prosecutors would not seek the death penalty against her. However, Harris' family members left the courtroom upset.
"We want her remains, so we can put her to rest," one family member said.
Not only are family members re-living Harris' murder, so are neighbors who live off Rose Avenue in Greenville.
"I recall that day clear as day," Andrea Drummond said.
She lives across the street from the house where Harris' body parts were found in trash bags.
"It was a very horrific deal for everyone," Drummond said.
Her dog, ShaCole, found Harris' body parts on the porch at the abandoned home.
"I couldn't believe it, I couldn't believe my eyes," she said.
Another trash bag with remains were found about a mile away at the Andover Apartment Complex. It's a case that still bothers Andrea Drummond and haunts Mekole Harris' family members.
The solicitor is still seeking the death penalty against Clarence Jenkins. He's expected to go to trial sometime this year.
