Mo. judge lowers bond in Good Samaritan killing

Thursday, May 1, 2008

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A St. Louis County judge has lowered the bond requirements for a jailed man charged with accidentally killing a Good Samaritan.

Prosecutors say 19-year-old Aaron Poisson accidentally ran over and killed a Good Samaritan who was chasing Poisson after he allegedly stole a tip jar from a Starbucks.

Poisson is charged with involuntary manslaughter for the killing of 54-year-old Roger Kreutz.

KSDK News reports that Poisson's bail was originally set at $50,000.

But St. Louis County Judge Colleen Dolan adjusted his bond to allow for posting ten percent of the amount, which is $5,000.

If Poisson posts the bail money, a review of the bail terms is scheduled for June 26.
