Bond Reduced for Troy Man Accused of Raping Two Women
A man accused of raping two women on the same day in Troy appears before a judge today, and his bond is reduced.
This afternoon, a judge reduced Andre Ellis's bond to $150,000 for each rape charge, and Ellis's defense attorney tells CBS 8 News his client thinks he can make bail as early as today.
Ellis's bond was reduced $100,000 from the original $450,000 that a judge granted him last month.
Police say Ellis raped two women, a former and current Troy University student, on March 26 within hours of each other at Hunter's Mountain Mobile Estates.
Investigators say Ellis, who is a former solider and a Troy business owner, lived close to the two victims.
While Ellis's defense claims there's still no DNA evidence, police say they are standing by their investigation.
