Accused killer Lloyd Hammond could get out of jail

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There's one thing one of Louisville's most infamous criminals will have to do if he wants to get out of jail.

Lloyd Hammond was convicted of murdering William Sawyers and Terrell Cherry -- but he was released from prison after his conviction was overturned. Now, a ruling from the Kentucky Supreme Court will allow the use of recorded testimony by a witness who was murdered before the trial.

This morning in court, a judge set his bond at $500,000 partially secured, and $200,000 property. If those are posted, Hammond will be allowed on home incarceration. If not, he will stay in jail.

His trial date is set for January.
