The Florida man accused of first-degree murder in the shooting death of his wife and three counts of attempted murder after opening fire during Sunday services at a nearby church has been ordered to remain in jail without bond.
Jeremiah Fogle, 57, also was appointed a public defender during a hearing Monday.
Fogle is accused of killing his wife, Theresa, at their home on Sunday. Authorities say he then went to Greater Faith Christian Center Church about a block away, stormed through the front doors and shot the pastor and associate pastor.
Authorities say pastor William Boss and associate pastor Carl Stewart were shot from behind. Boss, who was shot in the head, and Stewart, shot three times in the back and ear.
The two pastors remain hospitalized. No one else at the church was hurt.
Derrick Foster, a teacher in the ministry, heard the gunfire, then screams and he and another man tackled Fogle.
"He had a great grip on the gun," Foster said. "My plan was, as soon as he hit the floor, it would cause him to drop it. But he didn't drop it."
He said it took three or four minutes of struggling with the gunman before he finally wrested the weapon away.
The gunman had six rounds in his pocket. "He was prepared to shoot even more," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.
According to court records, Fogle also killed a previous wife more than two decades ago. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to probation in 1987.
Fogle, who appeared before a judge Monday by video conference, appeared stoic and did not speak. His public defender also did not speak in court.
