State opposes accused killer's plea for bond reduction

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A bond reduction was objected in the case of Carlos Manor who is accused of second-degree murder in 2010.

Manor requested a reduction of his bond set at $600,000. The state objected to a bond reduction due to Manor's multiple previous felony convictions.

Manor is accused of the murder of Brandon Dicks who was shot multiple times June 14, 2010. His body was found in a mobile home park off Avenue D.

Manor's uncle, who owns a construction company, told Judge Clayton Davis he would provide a place for Manor to live and work and would see that he makes his court appearances.

Judge Davis said one concern about reducing Manor's bond is the possibility that if he gets out, he could commit more crimes.

Judge Davis will rule on the bond reduction request on February 27. At last word no new trial date had been set on the murder charge.

KPLC will continue to update the story as more information becomes available.
