Billy Ivy, Jr. out of jail, attorneys seeking more information in unsolved murder

Attorneys are looking for evidence linking Ivy to Telford's murder

- This story has been updated to specify Ivy was in the Randall County Jail.

AMARILLO, TX - Billy Ivy, Jr. is now a free man.

Ivy was released this weekend after spending more than two months in Randall County Jail. His bond was reduced on two arson charges in connection with the murder-for-hire case he's allegedly tied to. Now, his attorneys are seeking information in a murder case in which Ivy has also been implicated.

Ivy was implicated in last year's murder of Charlesetta Telford through testimony given by investigators. They claim a gun recovered at Ivy's Oldham County Ranch may have been used in the unsolved murder of Telford and her unborn child.

Now, Ivy's attorneys are seeking evidence the prosecution may have tying Ivy to Telford's unsolved murder. They filed a request for discovery on all paternity testing and results obtained in connection with Telford and her unborn child. Testimony indicates Ivy may be the father of that child.
 
Telford was gunned down in front of her apartment in June of last year.
 
We now know the conditions of Ivy's release over the weekend:
 
Ivy was released from federal custody while he awaits sentencing on gun charges he pleaded guilty to last week. His original bond conditions remain.

He then was released from state custody on arson charges related to the murder-for-hire case. As part of his release, he must remain within the area, he can't have contact with a specific witness in the murder-for-hire case, and he must wear a monitoring device.
 
It's important to note that even though Ivy's attorneys are requesting information related to their client and the unsolved murder, Ivy is in no way charged in the case.
 
He has only been implicated through testimony.
 
Similar story in last year's disappearance of Nicole Moore - Ivy was mentioned as a possible suspect in that case, but is not charged.
