Koepp's Attorney Says He'll Ask For Reduced Bond

News::Koepp's Attorney Says He'll Ask For Reduced Bond: "An attorney for the man suspected in a triple murder in Rock County, but not charged with the slayings, says he'll ask for reduced bond.

James Koepp is being held on $60,000 bail on unrelated charges. Koepp is accused of leading police on a chase in the days following the murders of Danyetta Lentz and her children, 17-year-old Nicole and 14-year-old Scott Lentz. Their bodies were found January 12th.

Defense attorney Larry Peterson say a high cash bail might have been justified earlier because it appeared the homicide charges were imminent. But, he says too much time has passed to justify the high bond.

District Attorney David O'Leary said after Koepp was arrested they expected to charge him with the homicides within days. O'Leary says he's waiting for analysts to sift through more evidence before issuing any charges in the slayings.

Koepp will be in court Thursday to try to permanently block his corrections records from release."
