FARMINGTON, MO (KDKZ-TV) The man accused of stabbing his stepfather to death in February was again denied a bond reduction.
Justin Kozik’s Public Defender, Susan DeGeorge, asked that he be released on his own recognizance or that his bond be reduced from the current amount of $1 million cash or surety to a “reasonable amount.”
Kozik has been charged with first-degree murder, and armed criminal action in connection with the February death of his stepfather, Steven Wells.
DeGeorge argued that the bond amount was excessive and he is not a flight risk. She said the current bond is greatly beyond Kozik’s financial ability and higher than other bonds normally set of this type.
