Jeremy Hamer and Andrian Bullock appeared before Judge W. Boyette Denton, officially charged with two counts each of first-degree murder.

According to court papers, Bullock confessed  to being involved in the death of Robertson and his son.

After reaching out to the TBI for more information on the suspects’ criminal backgrounds, there was no history in the state of Tennessee for Andrian Bullock or Damien Hamer, but Jeremy Hamer had several run-ins with the police dating back to 2005.

“From my understanding that you have a lengthy history of criminal activity, and also you’re on parole currently from the state of Mississippi,” Judge Denton said to Jeremy Hamer.

Judge Denton gave Jeremy Hamer no bond, and Bullock’s is set for $10 million.

The third suspect, Damein Hamer, is in north Mississippi where he was arrested. The district attorney’s office is working on his extradition.

Both Jeremy Hamer and Andrian Bullock’s preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 1. No possible motive has been released in the killings.
