A Newnan man charged with the 2017 murder of a Heard County man is back in jail on weapons charges.
Kendricquis Reshard Parks, 29, is charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and violation of probation, according to jail documents.
Parks is currently charged with the 2017 murder of David Allen Fritts, 33, who was fatally shot on the evening of Jan. 20, 2017, in the area of Neal Street, but was able to drive away from the scene and later crashed his car through a utility pole on West Washington Street.
Following the crash, Fritts was found unresponsive by police who later determined he suffered a single gunshot wound through his side. The impact of the crash disrupted power to the surrounding area for several hours.
Parks was booked into jail on Feb. 16, 2018, on murder charges, but was released two years later on a $66,200 bond.
According to investigators, on Sept. 8, Parks was seen on social media discharging a semi-automatic handgun onto the ground.
An arrest warrant was signed by Superior Court Judge Travis Sakrison on violation of bond conditions, and he was arrested on Sept. 21. He remains in the Coweta County Jail without bond on indictment and violation of probation.
District Attorney Herb Cranford Jr. said Parks’ case is active and his office is waiting on the authority to conduct jury trials again.
Monday’s arrest marked Parks' 21st trip to the Coweta County jail since March 31, 2008.
