LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Could the man charged with killing two Homeowners Association members have the option to pay his way out of prison? A judge agreed Tuesday to hear arguments for that request.
Mahmoud Hindi could get the death penalty if convicted of killing Dave Merritt, 73, and Marvin Fisher, 69, at a Spring Creek Homeowners Association meeting in September.
Hindi's original bond was set at $1 million, but because it's a death penalty case the state asked it be remanded and were granted that request. Hindi is currently being held without bond.
Mike Lemke represents Hindi. He said he doesn't think Hindi could afford to pay a $1 million bond.
Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Ryane Conroy has the option to ask the judge to keep Hindi without bond or agree to a certain number.
"There was a reason the Commonwealth asked for the change at the time at the case was indicted and reported to the grand jury. We have made no determinations about what will be said at a December 3 hearing, but obviously we're the ones that originally requested the bond be a remand bond."
The judge is expected to make a final decision about Hindi's bond at that December hearing.
