Lower Bond Sought By Man Accused Of Killing Ga. Law Grad From Laurel

MACON, Ga. (AP) — Lawyers for the man accused of killing a Mercer University law school graduate are expected to ask a judge on Tuesday to reconsider his bond.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Stephen McDaniel, who has pleaded not guilty in the June 2011 slaying of Lauren Giddings. Her torso was discovered wrapped in plastic in a garbage bin beside her apartment building.

The Telegraph newspaper reports that attorneys for McDaniel, 26, contend that the $850,000 bond amount, set in April, is higher than his family can afford and is akin to denying bond.

Giddings, 27, was from Laurel, Md. McDaniel is from Lilburn, in suburban Atlanta, and is being held at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center.
