Portion Of Bond Withdrawn For Man Charged With Killing His Son-in-Law

Monday, March 19, 2018

Bond is again an issue in the case in which a 56-year-old Ooltewah man was charged in the murder of his 39-year-old son-in-law.

Attorney Jerry Summers said a piece of the bond package that had been put together to gain freedom for Glen Allen Donaldson had been withdrawn. It involved a lien on a business in Brainerd.

With that withdrawn, the bond package was down to $308,700.

Criminal Court Judge Don Poole had earlier lowered the bond from the $500,000 set in General Sessions Court to $375,000.

Attorney Summers asked that the $308,700 be acceptable, however, Judge Poole would only lower it to $340,000.

Prosecutor Cameron Williams said he favored the original $500,000 bond, saying there was a strong case against Donaldson, who is set to go to trial on May 22.

Donaldson left the courtroom, but apparently needed to round up the additional bond in order to remain out.

The bond package includes $117,000 from a group of six bonding companies.

Adam Keith Levi was found dead at his home in Ooltewah on Dec. 29, 2016, after Donaldson called 911 to report the shooting.

Donaldson, who is charged with first-degree murder, was asked by the dispatcher if his son-in-law was still alive. He said, "I doubt it."

Here we go again with the same pitiful news reports about the Cummings Highway Interstate interchange with I-24 - Flooding yet again after a heavy rain.  TDOT is derelict in not having repaired this years ago.  How hard is it to get some excavators out there to dig up the collapsed drainage pipes which TDOT says are the cause of the flooding and replace them with ...

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
