Police say that suspect Peggy Mina told them that her nephew Raphael Robinson went to Homer Carrender’s home….acting as if he was going to buy his guns. But police say the motive all along was robbing him. The end result was Carrender stabbed and beaten to death.
Further evidence was that several people saw a man and a woman matching Mina and Robinsons’ descriptions entering Carrender’s apartments before the murder. After an hour or so of testimony….the judge agreed to forward the case onto a grand jury….and he agreed to set a bond amount, for $1 million each.
“I don’t think that’s right. I still don’t think that’s right. I don’t think they should have any bond whatsoever. My brother’s life was worth more than a million dollars,” said Christine Black, Carrender’s sister.
The judge found probable cause and sent the case to Pulaski County grand jury for possible indictment.
