No Bond Reduction in Murder Case

A bond hearing in a murder case turned briefly into an argument about whether or not the suspect had been a victim of domestic abuse. Donna Matthews, formerly of Kenosha, is accused of killing her former boyfriend Michael Gayan. At a hearing Thursday, attorneys requested that her bond be lowered from $1 million to $100,000. Defense attorney Hillary Edwards said a lower bond would not allow Matthews to get out of jail while awaiting her trial — but it would change her classification in the court system, allowing her to have access to a counseling program for domestic abuse. Circuit Court Judge Jodi Meier rejected the motion, keeping the bond at $1 million.
