OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

On Wednesday, Judge Matthew Mestayer bound the case of Cameron May over to the grand jury in the case of aggravated assault against Barbi Jalanivich of Ocean Springs.

Mestayer denied bond to May because he considered him a flight risk.

On Oct. 23, Cameron May was brought into the Municipal Court in Ocean Springs for a preliminary hearing following his arraignment in the attack of Ocean Springs woman Barbi Jalanivich at the Dominion Apartments on September 10.

At that time, May told Judge Matthew Mestayer that he had second thoughts regarding that preliminary hearing and decided at that point to reject his court appointed defense attorney.

On Wednesday, May's request for the hearing was denied. Mestayer made the decision after hearing testimony on the investigation.

May’s attorney says he wants to wait until receiving evidence from the state before deciding on how he will defend his client.

“Discovery is all the information that the state is going to use against Mr. May,” Cooper said, “and we can address that issue when we get complete discovery.”

Barbi's father, Danny Jalanivich, says he is happy with the decision.

“We’re just glad he’s back, behind bars and no bail,” he said.

May has been moved to the Jackson County Adult Detention Center in Pascagoula. Should he be indicted by the grand jury, he will go to trial in Jackson County Circuit Court. The prosecuting attorney for the case is Monte Tynes with the city of Ocean Springs.

May had been in the Okaloosa County since September 21, before Ocean Springs Police were given permission to return him to the city last Friday.
