SUNBURY - Northumberland County President Judge William H. Wiest issued an order Friday denying bail to Robert Charles Thomas, of Milton, who is charged with criminal homicide in the April 14, 2013, shooting death of his wife, Patricia.

During a bail hearing held Thursday, District Attorney Ann Targonski argued that Thomas is not eligible for bail since he's facing a life sentence on the homicide charge. The judge did not set a bail amount and ordered Thomas back to prison.
