Bond reduced for JC pharmacist accused of trying to kill wife

Lee Scott Renfro

A local pharmacist’s bond hearing was packed Wednesday afternoon with friends and family members of his and his wife, who is also the victim in the case against him.

Lee Scott Renfro, 51, 15 South Hills Circle, is charged with attempted first-degree murder in an alleged attack on his wife in which he’s accused of injecting her with a blood sugar reducing medication.

It happened Feb. 12 at Johnson City Medical Center, where Martha Renfro was a patient. She had apparently been admitted for problems with her blood sugar, which is something that had plagued her for several weeks prior to her husband’s arrest.
