James Eric Davis Jr. was formally arraigned on Tuesday afternoon, March 6.
The 19-year-old has been charged with two counts of murder for allegedly killing his parents on the campus of Central Michigan University on Friday. He is also facing a felony weapons charge.
On Friday morning, James Eric Davis Sr. and Diva Davis were found dead in a dorm room on CMU's campus. The suspect was their son, Davis Jr., who fled the scene on foot.
After locking down the campus and searching for Davis Jr., the manhunt finished when he was found more than 15 hours later.
It was later discovered that the gun used in the shooting was registered to Davis Sr. who was a police officer with Bellwood Police in Illinois.
Davis Jr. made his court appearance from a hospital bed. His attorney, Joshua Blanchard, was in the hospital room with him during the arraignment. Typically, Davis Jr. would have another court appearance in the next two weeks, but Blanchard asked for an extension while his client recuperates from hypothermia.
The prosecutor asked for the bond to be kept at $3 million, because they believe Davis Jr. could be a flight risk. Blanchard said that was the equivalent of providing his client with no bond.
The judge set the bond at $500,000 for the open murder charges and $125,000 for the unlawful weapons charge. Davis Jr.'s total bond is $1.25 million.
Once Davis Jr. is released from the hospital, he will be booked into Isabella County Jail and a preliminary hearing date will be set.
