Guam - The defense for 40-year-old Jimmy Chin Song will explain why they believe the trial court erred when denying their request to reduce bail. Song is being held behind bars on $250,000 cash bail, but argues that he should be released on the original bail amount of $50,000 that he first posted.
Song is charged with manslaughter and aggravated assault in the death of 27-year-old Yunmo Ku, who died from blunt force trauma to his head. The two got into an argument outside the Sing-A-Song Cafe in Harmon last month. Because Song has asserted his right to a speedy trial, the Supreme Court has expedited the appeal process.
Oral arguments will be presented to the Guam Supreme Court on Tuesday at 2:30 in the afternoon.
