The judge didn’t grant Lee bond Tuesday and said he would make a decision by the end of the week, Channel 2 Action News reported. Lee was an Atlanta Department of Corrections officer at the time of Smith’s homicide.

Smith’s family told Channel 2 they hope Lee, who lived less than a mile from the home where Smith died, does not get bond.
“He’s been dormant and quiet for 21 years, and I really hope he is not granted bond,” Dana Bogensch, Smith’s sister, told the news station.
Lee faces charges of murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to Fulton County Jail records.
