The Cullman County man accused of killing a convicted sex offender is escalating his attempts to be released from jail.
Jay Maynor's attorney says he is taking his fight to get his client released to the Alabama Supreme Court. He says he has filed a petition asking the court to order the trial judge to follow existing precedent when it comes to bail for the indigent. He says his client simply can't afford the 141 thousand dollar cash bond.
Maynor is accused of killing Raymond Earl Brooks. Brooks was convicted of sexually abusing one of Maynor's relatives.
