Bond Denied For Holmes Co. Murder Trail

Bond has been denied for an elderly northwest Florida man charged with killing his daughter's boyfriend.

On Tuesday night, 72-year-old Bobby Gene Myers is alleged to have fatally shot 26-year-old Steven Kirch outside a Bethlehem community home.

Holmes County authorities have not given a motive for the shooting, but neighbors tell News 4 that Kirch and his girlfriend had a history of domestic violence.

At Myers first court appearance he was ordered to remain at the Holmes County Jail on an open count of murder.
