Suspect in 3 cases gets bond
Friday, April 25, 2014 12:00 AM
Bond was set Thursday for a Greenwood man who faces charges in three different violent crimes.
Kelsey Watson, 32, of 129 N. Hospital St., appeared for a bond adjustment hearing inside Greenwood County Courthouse. He stands accused of six felonies stemming from three unrelated incidents in 2012 and 2013. Among those is an attempted murder charge and two counts of armed robbery.
Circuit Court Judge Thomas Hughston presided over Thursday’s hearing and issued a $200,000 cash or surety bond for Watson on the slate of indictments. He ordered that the suspect re-appear before a circuit judge who can set the terms of his release, should he be able post bond.
Watson was originally arrested in the case June 25, 2013, and charged in connection with two of the incidents.
