Debra Milke's Attorneys Ask Judge to Set Bail

Debra Milke should be granted bail in her pending re-trial for murder because the main evidence against her is the word of a lying scoundrel of an ex-cop with zero credibility.

That's pretty much the argument offered by Milke's attorneys Michael Kimerer and Lori Voepel in a motion filed Monday in superior court.

As I explained in a previous blog item, Milke, whose 1990 conviction in the slaying of her 4-year-old son Christopher was recently overturned by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, may still be entitled to bail under the provisions of the Arizona Constitution.
