Judge Sets Bail For WI Man Accused Of Killing Parents

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013 at 6:26 am

A judge has set the bail of 44-year old Jim Crain, who’s been accused of killing his parents in Iron River, WI. Crain’s bail was set at $1 million.

Crain made his first court appearance via video link Monday afternoon. Crain is accused of killing his father and mother, 79-year-old Jim Crain and 76-year-old Eunice Crain, in an attack in the couple’s Iron River apartment on Dec. 7.

Prosecutors argued he is a flight risk because he has no other family members in the area, has no job and has a prior conviction for bail jumping.

The Associated Press reports the defense did not object to the bond amount.
