Murder suspect returns to court to ask for bond reduction

It was another day in court Wednesday for murder suspect Alexander Muniz, which meant another day in court for the family of the man he's accused of killing, James Michael Crowe.

"We'll be here every time until he's sentenced. Hopefully it won't take long with all of the evidence they have," said Jackie Ousley, Crowe's aunt.

Crowe's family sat in a Woodford County courtroom today, just a few rows away from Alexander Muniz's family.

Police say in April, Muniz shot 18-year-old James Michael Crowe in the parking lot of a Versailles apartment complex.

At today's hearing, Muniz's attorney said he was still waiting on some evidence, including surveillance video and an autopsy report.

The judge in this case ordered the prosecution to turn over that evidence within thirty days.

Muniz's attorney also asked for a bond reduction. Muniz's bond is currently set at $500,000 and his lawyer asked that it be reduced to $50,000.

Crowe's family says they strongly oppose that reduction.

Muniz will be back in court on October 5. By then, his lawyer will have had time to review that video evidence and the judge said he will rule at that time on a bond reduction.
