Judge denies bond for mother involved in infant’s death

Hannah Barker

A judge denied a motion filed by the defense at Hannah Barker’s bond hearing Sept. 21. The motion requested the bond be lowered, but the judge upheld “no bond.” The defense filed a total of 22 motions. Only two were heard at the bond hearing and the rest were passed without fixing. The first motion was a preliminary investigation. Evidence was presented.

Barker was charged on July 25 with principal to first degree murder in the death of her 6-month-old baby boy, Levi Ellerbe.
