Accused killer back in jail after five days of home incarceration

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville murder suspect who was released from jail on home incarceration just five days ago was back in jail Monday night after being indicted by a grand jury.

He was back in a court room Tuesday morning.

"It looks like the district court bond was home incarceration, but a grand jury has issued a warrant for his arrest and that bond is $100,000," said Jefferson District Judge Audra Eckerly.

A public defender explained the indictment to Williams Tuesday morning and entered a formal plea of not guilty for him. The 20-year-old was indicted Monday in the death of 20-year-old Robert Leachman.

Police say Williams admitted to shooting Leachman last week in the Park Hill neighborhood.

Initially, a judge said the arrest report from LMPD didn't have enough information about the crime, and Williams was released on home incarceration. The judge's move triggered frustration from LMPD Chief Steve Conrad, who expressed disappointment.

A judge set his bond at $100,000. A pre-trial hearing date is set for September.
