Thirty-year-old Jacob Daniel Price was denied bond by a judge after admitting to killing his parents and two family dogs.

CRESTVIEW — Jacob Daniel Price, who has admitted to killing his parents in their home, was denied bond by a judge Thursday morning.


Price, 30, walked into the Crestview Police Department shortly after 4 a.m. Wednesday and told authorities he had shot and killed his parents and two family pets.


Deputies found 51-year-old Jolene Price and 56-year-old Robert Price dead in the master bedroom of their home with what appeared to be fatal gunshot wounds to the head, Jacob Price’s arrest report said.


Two family dogs were also found dead from what appeared to be a firearm.


Price is being held in the Okaloosa County Jail on two counts of premeditated murder and two counts of aggravated animal cruelty.


A plea date has been set for Dec. 17, with a trial tentatively scheduled to begin Feb. 17, according to court records.


According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and the Crestview Police Department, the arrest was Price’s first locally.


Price lived with his parents in their home on Equine Drive in the Silver Springs Estate neighborhood off Lake Silver Road. Their home was one of 20 on Equine Drive.


All was quiet in the Prices’ neighborhood Thursday afternoon.


Russell Francis, who lived across the street from the Robert and Jolene, knew Robert for about a year and a half.


"My previous neighbor introduced me to him," Francis said. "He was all-around genuinely a good guy."


Francis said Robert owned his own business consulting company, so he would often ask for business advice.


"He was always willing to help," Francis said. "He was just that kind of guy."


According to Francis, one thing everyone in the neighborhood knew was they would find Robert outside on Saturdays.


"He would mow his grass every Saturday morning," Francis said. "Whether it needed it or not."


Francis said he did not know Jolene near as well as her husband, but said she enjoyed working outside as well.


"I would see her outside in the springtime planting flowers," Francis said.
