MOUNT VERNON - At a arraignment this morning, bond for Travis Bonham was set at $50,000.
The announcement was made by Knox County Prosecutor Chip McConville after the 10 a.m. hearing.
Bonham remains in the Knox County jail after his Monday indictment on one count of grand theft, a fourth degree felony.
He is considered a suspect in the September 30 Coshocton Rd. murders of his girlfriend, 23 year old Jamie Barber and his mother 50 year old Sandra Stelk.
He was arrested on Monday in Licking County after manhunt that reached across central Ohio.
The Knox County Sheriff's Investigation into the murders is ongoing. Bonham has not yet been charged with homicide.
In response to questions about the possibility of Bonham getting being released on bond, the Knox County Prosecutor released the following statement:
Because of the amount of public concern, we feel the need to address the
issue of this morning's bond hearing for Travis Bonham. His bond is
only being set for the charge of Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle.
However, we would like to assure the public that if Travis Bonham pays
the bond that is set for the Grand Theft charge he will remain in jail
on an Adult Parole Authority holder. Bonham will not be getting out of
jail any time this week.
