BECKLEY, W.V. (LOOTPRESS) – On Tuesday, Jan. 12, a bond hearing was held for Davide Hudson Jr- a man charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping in connection to the shooting and killing of 18-year-old Amber Meadows at the Travelodge hotel in Beckley in July of 2018.
During the hearing, Hudson’s attorney stated that they were asking for the bond reduction in order to prepare for trial.
Hudson, who was originally set with no bond, was granted a reduced bond of $100,000 with strict home confinement by Judge Kirkpatrick, according to Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Raleigh County, Brian Parsons.
The Prosecuting Attorney’s office was hoping for no bail.
“We contested that, but the judge did not bite on it and set the bail. We have no date for the trial, but I believe that it is coming soon. I would like to get it done before June 1, but nothing yet,” Parsons said.
Hudson was one of four men charged in the Travelodge hotel murder.
