ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- David Parvin will return to court Friday in an attempt to obtain his release on bond pending a new trial.

Parvin, 74, recently had his conviction of murder in the shooting death of his wife overturned by the Mississippi Supreme Court.

Parving claims the 2007 shooting death of Joyce Parvin, 68, was an accident.

He was indicted by a grand jury and later convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 2011.

In April, the Mississippi Supreme Court overturned the conviction and said the judge was wrong to allow certain evidence to be presented during the trial.

Parvin was returned to the Monroe County jail to be released on $75,000 bond in June.

His attorney says he got into an altercation with a deputy and the judge revoked his bond saying he felt he was a danger to himself and the community.

A psychiatrist met with Parvin and issued a ruling saying he didn't think Parvin was dangerous.

His attorney is asking the court to reinstate the $75,000 bond.

The hearing will take place at 9 a.m. Friday morning at the Monroe County Courthouse in Aberdeen.
