Judge says no bond for suspect in boy's slaying
FULTON (AP) - A Missouri judge has ordered a man suspected of killing a 6-year-old boy to be held without bond after an unidentified person inquired about whether a cashier's check could be used to post what had been a $1 million cash-only bond.
The Fulton Sun reports 27-year-old Scottie Willett of Fulton is accused of fatally shooting Dayne Hathman on Aug. 28 at a home where Willet had been living with the child and his mother. He is charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, tampering and receiving stolen property.
A Missouri Board of Probation and Parole representative says Willet told him if he bonded out, he would flee and not show up in court.
Willet's next court date is set for 9 a.m. on Oct. 3.
