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Summers said a piece of the bond package that had been put together to gain freedom for Glen Allen Donaldson had been withdrawn.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With that withdrawn, the bond package was down to $308,700.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."
