Bond for Bryce Rose set at $500,000

A district court judge on June 13 set bond for Bryce Rose at $500,000.

Rose, 17, is charged with murder in the shooting death of his father, Hank Rose Jr., in Tyrrell County on May 30.

Judge Darrell Cayton Jr. also ordered that Rose, if released, confine himself to the family home in Gum Neck, except for doctor’s appointments, and that he wear an electronic monitoring device.

Rose’s mother, 18-year-old brother, and 10-year-old sister also reside at the same address.

Assistant District Attorney Shannon Jarvis told the judge that Rose was running away from home and that his parents tried to stop him. He left the house and walked along South Gum Neck Road, his father intercepted him some distance from the house and, during their encounter, Rose shot his father, she said.

Rose’s attorney, Christin Routten of the Pubic Defender’s Office, asked that bond be granted, saying he was a regular church attender, high achiever in school and was named a Junior Class marshal for the May 31 Columbia High School graduation. (Rose was in custody when the school ceremonies occurred. Earlier in May, Rose had been accepted as a cadet in the American Legion Student Trooper Program set for June 16-21 in Raleigh and conducted by the State Highway Patrol.)

Jarvis argued against allowing bond, saying Rose is a flight risk as well as a risk to the community. If granted, however, it ought to be very high, she contended. She told the judge that Rose’s probable cause hearing is set for November 5.

“Please help me to help him,” Carrie Rose said tearfully in asking the judge to release her son from custody. “I’ll do everything you require and I’ll care for him.”

In answer to Judge Cayton’s question about any trouble at home, she said the family never had a problem with Rose, commenting, “he went to church more than I did.”

Rose’s mother said she worries because he wears braces on his teeth, which ought to be removed. She assured the judge that her other children are “acting like they always have” following the tragedy.

Sue Rose, the defendant’s grandmother, said, “We’re a Christian family and we’re trying to forgive.”

Rose, wearing a dark green jumpsuit, stood beside his attorney and looked straight ahead throughout the proceeding.

His mother, paternal grandparents, several other family members and the defendant’s pastor were present.

As of midday Friday, June 14, Rose remained in custody in the Dare County Detention Center.
