GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The bond was lowered for a man who was in jail with the murder suspect he testified against.
Judge George Quist agreed Friday to eliminate Daren Eckford’s $100,000 cash surety bond on the condition he wear a GPS tether after the prosecutor’s office said it was concerned for his safety.
Eckford was a friend of Quinn James, who is charged with murdering and kidnapping the 16-year-old East Kentwood High School student.
Mujey disappeared on her way to school on Jan. 24; her body was found in a wooded area of Kalamazoo four days later.
