NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

A judge denied bond to one of two men charged in a pair of deadly New Year's Day shootings in North Charleston.

Montreal Ford, who is charged with the murder of Janet Royal, was denied bond. Ford is also charged with one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Royal's family wore pink t-shirts to honor her at Ford's bond hearing.

The other man accused in the case, Jimmie Harris, is charged with one count of murder in the death of Debra Randall Martin and one count of attempted murder in the shooting of Sabrina Green, who survived her wounds.

According to North Charleston Police Chief Eddie Driggers, Harris is the stepson of Royal and Ford is the son of Sabrina Green.

According to Driggers, Ford and Harris were in a fight at a club, and that conflict led to the shootings.

Detectives say that on New Year's Day, Harris shot Green at about 4:55 a.m.; Ford shot Royal at about 5:40 a.m.; and Harris shot Debra Martin Randall at about 6:40 a.m.

Ford has also been charged in a shooting at Club Camouflage in North Charleston and faces three attempted murder charges in that case.

There is no word on when Harris will have a bond hearing. Harris is being held in federal custody in Georgetown County after being arrested in Charlotte in March, police say. Harris is accused of shooting at officers during an undercover drug deal. Police say a dog was killed in that incident, but no one else was injured.
