Meyers Bond Hearing

A bond hearing was held Wednesday for a 72-year-old man charged with second-degree murder.

Bobby Gene Meyers allegedly shot Wendell Kirch in the neck outside a mobile home in Holmes County’s Bethlehem community on January 23rd.

Meyers reportedly approached the 26-year-old victim about a domestic violence incident involving the suspect's daughter.

Since it's not a capital murder case, the maximum sentence Meyers could get, if convicted, is life in prison.

Circuit Judge Allen register placed Myers bond at $50,000.

He was also ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device if released.

A pre-trial in the case is scheduled for next month.
