The $4 billion bond a Killeen man was facing for murder has been set aside and replaced with a $150,000 bond by District 27 judge John Gauntt.
Gauntt set the bond aside and replaced it himself without a hearing.
A joint motion was filed by Antonio Willis’ defense attorney Billy Ray Hall and Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza. The motion called the $4 billion bond unconstitutional.
The bond was believed to be the highest in history.
Despite the drop in bond, Antonio Willis will continue to ask for a reduction hearing because he still cannot meet the bond requirement.
