A motion to strengthen bond against a woman accused of fatally shooting a man "for no reason” in January was denied Wednesday.
Pittsburg County Associate District Judge Tim Mills denied the motion filed by the District 18 District Attorney’s Office that asked for the bond against Brenda Savage be strengthened to $500,000.
Savage will remain out on a $100,000 bond.
During Wednesday’s hearing, Savage was arraigned in district court for a first-degree murder charge in the January shooting death of 40-year-old Bart Jameson and her case was placed on the January 2020 trial docket.
Savage’s defense attorney Blake Lynch told Mills he intended to file a motion to quash Wednesday. Mills set the hearing on the motion for 10 a.m. Oct. 2 in his courtroom.
Oklahoma statute Title 22 § 22-504.1 states a "defendant may file a motion to quash for insufficient evidence in felony cases after preliminary hearing. The defendant must establish beyond the face of the indictment or information that there is insufficient evidence to prove any one of the necessary elements of the offense for which the defendant is charged.”
