Local Murder Suspect Wants Bond Lowered
Connie King and Troy Lynn King are accused of killing the man. Their trial is set to begin in May, 2015.
Connie King was arrested in July of 2013 in Daytona Beach, Fla., on charges of felony murder and premeditated first-degree murder. She was returned to Coffee County July 18, 2013. She is being held under $500,000 bond.
Connie King, 38, appeared in court on Wednesday with her attorney Chris Stanford, who made a request that her bond be lowered from $500,000 to $50,000.
King’s mother Shirley Nunley testified on behalf of her daughter. Nunley told the court that her daughter would stay with her at her home in Altamont in Grundy County if she is released on bond, but said she did not think she could financially afford to post a $50,000 bond if the judge lowered it to that amount, although she would try.
Stanford told the judge that if King is released she could wear a GPS tracking device at a cost of $300 a month. Her mother testified that she would pay for the tracking device.
Judge Vanessa Jackson will decide on the bond reduction in the next few weeks.
