Bond set for man accused of shooting in house


A $100,000 cash-only bond was set Monday for a Pine Bluff man who is accused of firing multiple gunshots into a residence on South Hickory Street.

Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Marty Harrison said in a probable-cause affidavit that Kenneth Oglesby, 27, became angry after speaking on the phone with his ex-girlfriend and then arrived at the woman’s residence in the 1200 block of S. Hickory St. around 5 a.m. Friday.

Harrison said in the affidavit that the ex-girlfriend told officers that Oglesby began to yell after he arrived on the front porch of the residence, followed quickly by his breaking a window on the front door and then firing multiple gunshots into the residence from the opening he created.

Oglesby then departed by car only to be arrested by PBPD officers a short time later, according to Harrison.

On Monday Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond for Oglesby after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with four counts of committing a terroristic act and four counts of aggravated assault.

Oglesby asked for time to hire an attorney and was ordered by Kearney to have no contact with the four occupants of the residence until after the case is settled.

Oglesby was told to report back to court Aug. 22.
