William Christopher Niemet will be supervised and must wear a GPS tracker after being released from Cole County jail Monday.

Niemet is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Greg Jones, whose body was found in June 1991 near Russellville after he was reported missing in April of that year. Jones had been shot in the head.

Niemet pleaded not guilty in March. A probable cause statement filed when Niemet was charged does not provide a motive for the shooting.

At the time of his arrest, Niemet owned and operated the Golden Corral in Quincy. The restaurant closed shortly after Niemet was jailed.
