Hall, 42, is suspected of killing Corrigan, who employed Hall's wife. It was also revealed in court that Hall's wife asked a judge to lift a no protection order so he could move back home. The request was denied.

Meridian Police have said Hall shot Corrigan over "domestic issues."

Police say Hall's wife met Corrigan in the parking lot at Walgreens around 10 p.m. on March 11. Prosecutors say Hall was armed and waiting for them when a confrontation broke out.

Hall's trial is set for November.
