McDaniel Prosecutors Won't Respond to Bond Request

Bibb County prosecutors won't respond to defense attorney's latest court filings that seek bond for accused murderer Stephen McDaniel.

District Attorney Greg Winters said defense attorneys Frank Hogue and Floyd Buford last week filed a brief explaining why they think McDaniel should be granted bond.

Winters noted the defense brief came after Superior Court Judge Phil Brown conducted a bond hearing and that prosecutors don't have anything further to say.

Prosecutors didn't object to a bond being set, but asked Brown to set bond at more than $2 million. Defense attorneys want a $100,000 bond.

If bond is granted, Winters pointed out that McDaniel wouldn't be freed immediately because he still faces felony burglary and child pornography charges.

McDaniel is accused of killing and dismembering fellow Mercer University law school graduate Lauren Giddings last summer.
