No ruling on Moyers bond request


A Limestone County Judge will take Joel Moyers' request for bond under advisement after Tuesday's hearing. Moyers is charged with capital murder. Investigators said he shot and killed Brandon Hydrick in Tanner in September.

Moyers was originally granted bond, but that was revoked after a grand jury came back with a capital murder indictment. Tuesday, his lawyers asked that Moyers once again be granted bond.

They believe this should be allowed because the district attorney has already said they will not seek the death penalty in this case. His attorney is asking that bond be set at $260,000, which is the same bond amount he was given before it was revoked.

Several witnesses testified about Moyers' efforts to get out of jail before his trial. The judge did not make a ruling, but will take the request under advisement.
