AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Family members of an Americus murder victim said Monday that they are upset the suspect has been let out of jail on what they call a low bond.

Kierra Warren placed bond and was released Wednesday, October 12. Her bond had been set by a judge at $50,000.

Warren is accused in the stabbing death of Brandon Douglas that happened April 23, 2016.

Douglas's mother, Valecia Sales-Seay told WALB News 10 she is sad, angry and disappointed that Warren was able to get out of jail.

At the time of Douglas's death, Warren was already out on bond on several different charges.

"She was accused of hitting Mr. Brandon Douglas with a window squeegee," said Misty Harry, Deputy Clerk of Superior Court in Sumter County.

"She was released on bond on February 8th, 2016. That bond was filed in the clerk's office on February 18, 2016. The amount of the bond was $7,000," said Harry.

District Attorney Plez Hardin said Monday while Warren's murder trial hasn't been scheduled, the earliest it could possibly start is January.

Hardin added that because Warren only had previous misdemeanor charges, she was allowed to get out on bond while awaiting the murder trial.

WALB News 10 tried to get in contact with Warren's defense attorney, Megan Lane, for a comment, but was unable to reach her.
