Guam - 40-year-old Jimmy Chin Song is scheduled to appear in the Guam Supreme Court this week as the defense has filed an appeal of a judge's decision denying his request to modify his bail. Song was originally held on $50,000 cash bail, which he posted, but when 27-year-old Yunmo Ku died, the prosecution and the court increased the bail amount to $250,000.
Ku died from blunt force trauma from a single blow to his head after he got into an argument with Song outside the Sing-A-Song Cafe in Harmon last month. With Song set to begin trial next month, Guam's high court has expedited the appeal process and will hold a hearing this Tuesday at 2:30 in the afternoon.
