    "As far as this case is concerned, they’ve overcharged, requested bond off the charts, in this county. You have people charged with homicides that don’t have bonds this high," Hobaugh's defense attorney, Duke George, said.

    Channel 11 was there last week when Hobaugh was taken into custody after a search of his home on Liberty Hill Road. 

    Prosecutors said Hobaugh has no history of employment, but allegedly said he had the money for bond, which is currently set at $500,000.
