LIMA — A reduction in the $1 million bond for a Lima teen charged with murder was denied on Monday.
Takal Austin, 18, is charged with aggravated murder and two counts of murder. All charges have firearm specifications and one has a criminal gang activity specification.
On Friday the court held a hearing on the motion to reduce the teen’s bond from Austin’s lawyer, Jim Owen. Allen County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey Reed took the weekend to review a video the state presented to make his ruling.
