BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

No bond was set Thursday for the the former Summerville jewelry store owner accused of killing his wife.

Michael Colucci is facing a murder charge after state law enforcement agents say he murdered Sara Moore-Colucci in May 2015.

Bond was automatically denied by the summary court judge, who said Colucci’s bond would have to be set by a circuit court judge.  

Moore-Colucci's death was originally reported as a suicide.

Her husband said she hanged herself with a garden hose, but medical evidence collected from the scene that night proved that wasn't true, according to an affidavit, and indicates there may have been a struggle. 

“The entire thing is one horrendous mess,” Moore-Colucci's father said. “It has about killed my wife.” 

“My wife asked Michael on more than one occasion, ‘Michael please tell me what happened,'” he said. 

“The second time she would ask, [Colucci’s story] would change a little,” he added before the judge stopped him from providing any more allegations, which would go beyond the purpose of the hearing. 

Colucci was arrested Wednesday morning. He is being held at the Berkeley County jail.

"The murder charge carries up to life in prison, 30 years, and/or death,” the judge said as Colucci shook his head.

    The tallest points of downtown Charleston has shifted from steeple tops to towering cranes building the next high-rise. In downtown Charleston, the intersections of Meeting and Woolfe Streets to Meeting and Huger Street are only about a half mile apart. One apartment complex already exists in that area (Elan Midtown) and sits at 97% capacity with more than 200 units. Over the next year, four more apartment complexes will be built and opened.
