LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A district judge has denied a bond reduction for a Hawkins man accused in the stabbing death of a Huntington man.
Bond remains at $100,000 for Thomas Hugh Fielder Jr., 40. His trial is expected to take place in January, according to his attorney, Jerry Whiteker.
Fielder was arrested back in December for the murder of Gary Defratus.
Authorities say Defratus' body was found by his mother in her carport, after he was stabbed multiple times.
