CULLMAN COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A Cullman County judge declined to reduce the bond of Jay Maynor, 41, the man accused of killing convicted sex offender, Raymond Brooks, 59, June 8.

Maynor remains in custody on a $141,000 cash bond. His attorney sought to either to reduce the bond or change it to a property bond so Maynor could be released from jail.

"As far as what we presented, we showed without any question, beyond all doubt that my client does not have the means to make a cash bond. That's unreasonable. He's presumed innocent by law," attorney Tommy Drake, said.

During Thursday's hearing Drake argued that Maynor simply could not afford the bond that was originally set.

Maynor's lawyer called the bond unconstitutional and put Maynor's wife on the stand to testify to about couple's lack of finances.

"The problem we have at this point is that nobody can make a cash bond [that high]. $141,000 is ridiculous and the district attorney was wrong in arguing against it," Drake said.

Prosecutors contended the original bond set is justified and in fact could have been higher.

"[Maynor] is a real risk. I want him in jail till we're ready to try him," Wilson Blaylock, Cullman County District Attorney, said. "There is a schedule that the state uses and if it's within that schedule then it's not unreasonable."

Court documents show that Brooks was convicted in 2002 of sexually abusing one of Maynor's relatives. 

The Cullman County Sheriff also said that before that fatal shooting, Maynor shot at his step-daughter's boyfriend at a local gas station.

Maynor is charged with murder, attempted murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
