CLEVELAND (WJW) – The motion for a bond reduction for Leander Bissell, the man charged with killing Cleveland Firefighter Johnny Tetrick, has been withdrawn.
During a bond hearing held Tuesday morning, Leander Bissell’s pretrial date was also set for February 2 with a trial date set for April 17.
Leander Bissell has been in jail since November, indicted for murder and more after a hit-and-run crash.
Police say he drove through the scene of an accident on I-90, plowed into the firefighter and took off.
Earlier this month, Bissell’s lawyers asked a judge for a big cut in his bond so that he would not have to put up a lot of money to get out of jail.
During Tuesday’s hearing, that motion for Leander Bissell’s bind to be reduced was withdrawn.
Bissell has plead not guilty to killing Tetrick.
