Faulkner County Circuit Judge Mike Maggio ruled against reducing the $250,000 bond for Sierra Cook, who is charged with hindering the apprehension of a capital murder suspect.
Cook, 18, was arrested and charged June 20, along with 27-year-old Lee Foster, who is accused in the Father's Day shooting death of Quenton Alexander, 23, at a local motel.
Cook's defense attorneys filed a motion Aug. 8 for a bond hearing Wednesday morning.
The defense called Cook's father as a witness, and the prosecution called a detective assigned to the homicide case.
After deliberating for more than 20 minutes, Maggio ruled that due to the "seriousness" of Cook's charge, bond would remain at $250,000.
The court set Cook's next pre-trial hearing for Sept. 25.
Foster is next in court, also before Maggio, on Sept. 9.
The Log Cabin Democrat will have more later in the day and in Thursday's print edition.
