Bond denied for man accused in slaying at abandoned east Macon car wash

Bond was denied Thursday for a 21-year-old Macon man charged with murder in the March 28 shooting death of another man at an abandoned east Macon car wash.

Jaqavius Javon Holloway alleges Marquis Reginald Lowe and Malik Tajhae Young, both 19, tried to rob him, Holloway's lawyer, Lauren Dixon argued at a Thursday hearing in Bibb County Superior Court.

A witness allegedly heard Young and Lowe talking about robbing Holloway, she said.

Lowe was pronounced dead at a local hospital after being shot during the encounter. Holloway and Young were charged with murder.

Holloway has been held at the Bibb County jail without bond since his April 6 arrest. If released on bond, Holloway has a job waiting for him as manager of a McDonald's restaurant, Dixon said.

Prosecutor Jimmy Daniels said there was a set-up to rob Lowe and Lowe was shot during the robbery attempt.

A gun had been advertised as being for sale and both Young and Holloway were carrying guns on the night Lowe was shot, he said.

Holloway was sentenced to probation in 2012 on a terroristic threats charge. The probation term is scheduled to end in 2017, Dixon said. Information from Telegraph archives was used in this report. To contact writer Amy Leigh Womack, call 744-4398.
