ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

An attorney for Limestone County capital murder suspect Joel Moyers filed a motion asking a judge to set bond.

Moyers is currently in the Limestone County Jail without bond. The judge revoked bond after a grand jury returned a capital murder indictment.

Moyers is accused of shooting and killing Brandon Hydrick in Tanner in September 2012.

In the bond motion Moyer's attorney states his client should be allowed bond since the Limestone County District Attorney will not seek the death penalty.

The motion requests bond be set at $260,000. That is the bond amount Moyers was given before the grand jury indictment.

Moyers spent several days in the hospital before returning to jail without bond. He overdosed after learning of the capital murder indictment.

Moyers is expected in court on February 19 for a motions hearing.
