Jail records show that Colby Kopacz was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center around 12:35 p.m. Wednesday. He is charged with murder and grand larceny of $10,000 or more.

The 15th Judicial Circuit public index shows he had a bond hearing on Thursday morning, and it appears no bond was set according to jail records.

The coroner’s office said Amy Kopacz died due to injuries sustained in an assault at a home along Little River Inn Lane.
