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.
