A murder suspect who has been in jail since Aug. 29, 2013 appeared in court again today.

David Morris is charged with the murder of Curtis Turner and for violating his probation. The District Attorney says Morris is a flight risk and is likely to commit another crime if released from jail.

He recommended a $250,000 bond for Morris, but the judge gave him a $200,000 bond for the murder charge. Morris was granted no bond for the violation of probation charge.

Turner's mother spoke at the bond hearing. She said Morris and another suspect, Laquinton Robinson, knew Turner was unarmed and that they hunted him down the night he was killed.

"Ya'll hunted him down like a dog," she said. "I've been wanting to look at you face to face, you have no right."

She became so emotional that her family led her out of the courtroom.

Morris is being represented by Attorney Stacey Jackson.
