(BAY MINETTE, Ala.) The three teens who are charged with murder in the death of Summer Moody asked to have their bonds reduced Friday.
Investigators say Scott Byrd, Dillon Tyree and Daniel Parnell were armed and breaking into fish camps on Gravine Island when Moody was shot in the back of the head.
They say the shot was a warning shot fired by a camper on the island. District Attorney Hallie Dixon says a Grand Jury found enough evidence to charge the teens with felony murder.
The charge of felony murder is the key here. It's also the big question. Defense attorneys at Friday's hearing argued it does not apply. A Grand Jury said otherwise.
All three teens face 10 to life if convicted of Moody's death. Attorneys managed to get bonds reduced from $250,000 to $200,000. If they make bond all three teens will be subject to GPS monitoring. Dixon says she is confident she can convince a jury the teens caused the death of Moody even though none of them fired the shot that killed her.
"The fact that the bullet that caused her death was not intended to strike her is one of the reasons it fits felony murder," Dixon said. "Because felony murder requires unintentional killing during an inherently dangerous felony."
