Judge Approves Bond Increase for Person of Interest in Fairmont Murders

Posted: Updated:

A Tulsa County judge approved a motion Wednesday to increase bond for a man who is described "at minimum, a witness" to the murders of four women at a south Tulsa apartment complex.

Prosecutors filed a motion Tuesday requesting the increase for Freddie Hayes, 32, who was booked into the Tulsa County jail on drug complaints on January 11.

On Wednesday morning, Judge Dana Kuehn increased Hayes' bond from $11,000 to a total $250,000.

Court records show that each count was increased to $125,000. They include unlawful possession of a controlled drug and carrying a concealed weapon.

Prosecutors claim the bond should be increased because the police investigation into the homicides at the Fairmont Terrace Apartments has identified Hayes as potential witness or possible person of interest, according to the motion.

Hayes has prior convictions in the state of Louisiana and prosecutors believe he could be a flight risk, the motion states.

Twins Rebeika Powell, 23, and Kayetie Melchor, 23, were found dead along with 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 56-year old Julie Jackson on January 7. Since then police have released few details about the investigation.
