The man arrested for shooting his estranged wife and 10-year old stepdaughter appeared in front of a Rockdale County Magistrate Court judge on Wednesday for his first court appearance since Tuesday's shooting.

Terrence Sherrod Roberson, 36, was read his charges of two counts of aggravated assault by Judge Garland Moore.
Roberson was not granted a bond hearing since he was on probation for a domestic violence incident in Newton County in January 2010. He will have until noon on Friday to submit a petition for bond. If he remains in the Rockdale County jail, Roberson will go to a probable cause hearing in the magistrate court at 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

On Tuesday morning, around 6:30 a.m., Roberson emptied all six rounds of a .38 caliber handgun into the Toyota Camry of Covington resident Kimya Roberson, who was dropping her daughter off at Little Mountain Christian Academy, located at 3144 Ga. Highway 155 in Rockdale County.

Kimya, a kindergarten teacher at CJ Hicks Elementary, normally dropped her daughter, Corinne Williams, off at Little Mountain Christian Academy around 6:25 a.m. for a bus to pick her up at 6:44 a.m. to take the girl to Lorraine Elementary School.
