Bond for accused murderer Shawn Smoot has been revoked.

Prosecutors moved for the revocation following Smoot’s arrest on DUI charges Tuesday in McMinn County.

The order was signed by Criminal Court Judge Eugene Eblen and was effective immediately.

Smoot is charged in Roane County with first-degree murder in the death of Brooke Nicole Morris, whose  body was found in Roane County on Oct. 15, 2011.

Smoot had not turned himself in as of Friday afternoon.

“As far as we know he’s not been arrested yet,” Deputy District Attorney General Frank Harvey said. “There’s process out for him, so it’s just a matter of waiting until they get him back in custody.”
