I just get the feeling if I was accused of stabbing someone death, that I wouldn’t get bond.
But Shanterrica Madden is a free woman today, after she posted a 100k bond.
The woman accused of killing a Middle Tennessee State University women’s basketball player was released from jail Friday on bond, and her parents said they planned to take their daughter home and hoped to meet with the family of the slain student.
A Friday viewing was scheduled for the junior guard, Tina Stewart. Her funeral was set for Saturday in Memphis.
Madden, 18, had her bond set at $100,000 on Friday, and her preliminary hearing was rescheduled. She appeared in Rutherford County General Sessions Court on Friday wearing an orange jumpsuit on a charge of first-degree murder in the March 3 stabbing death of Stewart in the off-campus apartment they shared. Madden’s family sat in the courtroom along with Stewart’s boyfriend, Middle Tennessee basketball player KC Anuna.
I don’t think she should have gotten bond, unless there is a part of the story I am missing all the evidence suggest she murdered Stewart in cold blood.
She is innocent until proven guilty, but she should have had to wait in jail.
