William Dean Ivey, III, 27, was transferred to the Robeson Detention Center from Scotland County jail at 10:30 a.m., Jones said.
"He was transferred because of the incident last week," Jones said. "To alleviate the problem here, we thought it would be the best for all parties involved to transfer him to another facility."
Ivey and his family members attempted to bribe a guard at the jail to pass nine Xanax pills onto Ivey.
Jones says Ivey will be held in that facility until his court date.
Ivey is awaiting trial for first-degree murder in the death of 46-year old Michelle Parks. Parks body was found bound with a plastic bag over her head a month ago in her Laurel Hill residence.
Deputies arrested Ivey's brother, 25-year old Thomas Scott Ivey and his mother, 44-year old Melody Thomas Ivey, at their 225 N. Main St. home Wednesday at 10:20 a.m for their role in the bribery incident, according to a sheriff's report.
Thomas Ivey is charged with felony conspiracy, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance and delivery of a schedule IV controlled substance while Melody Ivey is charged with felony conspiracy. William Ivey is also charged with felony conspiracy in the incident.
