Syracuse Shooter has Bond Revoked for Previous Crimes

SYRACUSE, Ind. (WOWO): New information has been released about the alleged gunman who was involved in the February deaths of Joushua Knisley and Tara Thornburg in Syracuse, Indiana.

On Thursday, Woody had his surety bond revoked for charges related to a prior incident in 2009. The eight charges include three counts of theft, one count of resisting law enforcement, one count of dealing marijuana, one count of receiving stolen property and two counts of burglary.

Woody was sentenced to prison on April 5th, 2010 with a bond set at $10,000. One year after being released from prison, Woody was on probation and charged with battery with bodily injury. He asked for a bond reduction to $5,000, which was granted on July 2, 2014.

Last month, police officers were responding to a burglary and arrived to see Knisley and Thornburg severely injured in a Syracuse home. Knisely was pronounced dead at the scene and Thornburg died in the hospital.

Woody remains in Kosciusko County jail without bond, on two counts of murder. He has a status conference for the murder charges on March 30th.
