Bail Increased $4.75 Million for Teen

A Philadelphia judge yesterday increased from $250,000 to $5 million the bail for Andre Butler, the 16-year-old Mantua youth charged with third-degree murder and related crimes for allegedly driving the stolen car that killed a police officer.

Municipal Court Judge Patrick F. Dugan granted a request by defense attorney Brian F. Humble to postpone Butler's preliminary hearing until Dec. 3. But on his own initiative, Dugan ordered the increase in the youth's bail, Assistant District Attorney John Doyle said.
