A Monday morning bond reduction hearing for 20-year-old Myles Stout, charged in connection with the March 9 shooting death of Myles Compton, was postponed.
Stout remains in Hamilton County Jail with his bond set at $116,000.
Witnesses have told investigators that Stout had pressed a handgun to Compton's chest. An autopsy report showed a single gunshot wound to the 18-year-old's chest from a .38-caliber gun. The bullet stopped just short of exiting Compton's body through his back.
During a recent preliminary hearing, General Sessions Court Judge David Bales dismissed charges of tampering with evidence and false report. But he ordered charges of second-degree murder, reckless endangerment and reckless homicide sent to the Hamilton County grand jury.
Stout is represented by attorney Hank Hill.
