No Bond Hearing Held for Murder Suspects, LIVINGSTON, August 28, 2009 - On August 27, 2009 at 11:30 am, court proceedings began in 258th District Judge Elizabeth Coker's Court for a No Bond Hearing in the murder case of Billy Ray Kimberlin. Suspects Alderick Lepaul Johnson, and Jermain Terrell Clifton were formally processed through court and both are being held in Polk County Jail without bond. Johnson and Clifton are the suspects in the August 21st murder of Billy Ray Kimberlin of Livingston. Kimberlin was shot and killed during what's been reported as a home invasion. Johnson was caught the same night and Clifton was caught four days later at an apartment complex in Northeast Houston. No Bond means that both suspects will remain in jail throughout the trial. A trial date will be set when the case has been presented to a Grand Jury and an indictment has been handed down. (See Related Story)
