Prosecutors oppose bond reduction for man accused in slaying
YOUNGSTOWN — Prosecutors filed a motion today in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court opposing a bond reduction for a man accused of killing the mother of his children.
Prosecutors are asking Judge Anthony Donofrio to deny a motion by Kyle Rice, 29, seeking a reduction of his bond of $1 million on a charge of aggravated murder.
Rice has had that bond since he was arraigned in municipal court in the Feb. 9 shooting death of Danekua Bankston, 28.
Rice was arrested shortly after Bankston was shot at her Oregon Avenue apartment on the West Side. She died a few days after the shooting at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.
