CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Two of the four suspects charged in March with incest and other sex crimes with two 4-year-old children have been granted bond.

Ambrose Heavener, 31, and Lindsay Honeycutt, 29, were each given surety bonds of $150,000, according to court records.

The bond order for Honeycutt was filed in July, while Heavener's was filed on Aug. 10, court records stated.

According to information from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, both are still behind bars.

If the suspects are able to pay their bonds, they are supposed to have no contact with the children, cannot leave Horry County without permission and will be put on GPS monitoring, according to court records.

Heavener and Honeycutt were each charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the first degree, sexual exploitation of a minor in the first degree, engaging a child for sexual performance, and incest.

The two suspects, along with Panteleimon Spirakis and Anthony L. Strickland, were taken into custody March 3 several weeks after the two victims disclosed to law enforcement that they were forced to have sex with each other, their siblings and the suspects over a five-month period from December 2014 to April 2015, according to police reports.

Those alleged crimes happened at several locations around Myrtle Beach, including the former Chez Joey gentlemen's club.

According to jail records, Strickland is out on home detention while Spirakis remains incarcerated.
