Bail is “not normally denied in homicide charge”. Chauvin, for e.g. Where DO you get you info?!!!
This comment in yesterday and not approved.
Um… for one thing – Chauvin is in a different state and second – he used to be a cop! Have you been drinking?
The big murder case that was just in the news – 14-year-old Claire Miller who is currently being charged as an adult – has her bail denied. Look up Raymond Rowe (murder of Christy Mirack) and Carlos Montalvo-Rivera (currently in jail awaiting trial for the arson murder of his wife Olga Sanchez-Reyes) and their bail was/is denied. In a homicide case bail is normally denied or set in the millions (Chauvin’s is one million).
According to her docket, Cherrelle Byrd’s bail is 10% of $75,000 or $7,500. That is unheard of in a “typical” homicide case. We have not seen her mugshot and I’m wondering if she has facial injuries?
According to the Prothonotary’s Office, they were divorced on September 22, 2017.
According to Lancaster County marriage records, Cherrelle Byrd and Richard Williams were married on July 14th, 2012. The picture below is from her Facebook page in March of this year.
*** BREAKING NEWS ***
Cherrelle Byrd’s docket indicates she had her preliminary arraignment this morning before District Judge Nancy G. Hamill. Unless this is an error, there must be extenuating circumstances because her docket indicates her bail is 10% of $75,000. Bail is normally denied in homicide cases.
