AG's office files motion to reconsider Kayla Giles' bond conditions
Just one day after Kayla Giles, the woman accused of murdering her husband in an Alexandria Walmart parking lot in Sept. 2018, was released from the Rapides Parish jail after posting a $510,00 bond, the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office filed a motion asking the court to reconsider the conditions of her bond.
On Wednesday, Judge Greg Beard made the decision to reduce Giles’ bond for her second-degree murder charge and obstruction of justice charge from $1,100,000 to $510,000. When Beard made the decision, certain conditions of her bond were set.
Now, the AG’s Office is asking that those conditions be tightened. In the motion filed on Friday, the AG’s Office asks that Giles “be equipped with a global positioning monitoring system (i.e. an ankle monitor).”
The reasoning behind the motion stems from Alexandria Police Department Det. Collin Butler’s statement during his testimony at the bond hearing.
The motion reads that Butler’s statements, which mentioned “recorded jail calls which revealed the defendant’s intention to leave the state if she were to bond out cause the State of Louisiana great concern.” If Giles were to leave the state, she would be breaking current bond conditions.
The AG’s Office requests that a hearing be held on the motion, and, subsequently, that the motion be granted.
