Marshal accused of killing kid asks for bond reduction
MARKSVILLE - Sources confirmed that Derrick Stafford, one of two Marksville Ward 2 Marshals accused of shooting and killing a six-year-old boy and critically injuring his father is asking his $1 million bond be reduced.
Stafford's attorney filed the motion and a judge will make a decision at a hearing in the next couple of weeks.
Stafford and Norris Greenhouse, Jr. are accused of shooting and killing Jeremy Mardis on November 3rd. His father, Chris Few, was shot in the head, and spent a few days in the hospital.
Greenhouse, Jr. already posted bail thanks to a $1 million property bond secured by his father, an attorney. Authorities blocked his release, citing an state law that attorneys can not post bail for their clients. That ruling was overturned, since Greenhouse, Sr. was not representing his son, and he was released November 24th.
Stafford's bond reduction hearing is scheduled for December 17th.
