LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Attorneys for Woodrow Karey Jr., the Lake Charles man accused of shooting and killing a local pastor, have filed a motion in 14th Judicial District Court to have Karey's bond reduced. 

Karey is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Ronald Harris Sr., pastor of the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles.  

Karey is currently being held on a $1 million bond in the Calcasieu Correctional Center. 

In their motion, Todd Clemons and Adam Johnson, who are representing Karey, claim he has "no prior criminal history and poses absolutely no danger or risk to the public should he be released." 

They go on to say, "Mr. Karey does not intend to leave Lake Charles or evade this Honorable Court's jurisdiction and will promptly appear before this Honorable Court whenever ordered to do so."

A bond hearing has been set for Thursday, Oct. 24 at 1:15 p.m.
