MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Murder and robbery suspect Maurice Harris stood before Judge Jay York in court Friday, September 6 for a bond hearing.
Harris is accused of killing 65-year-old Lai Robinson, known as the Candy Lady, in June during a robbery.
Harris was given no bond, which Assistant District Attorney Jill Phillips said the prosecution argued for due to the fact Harris has a violent criminal history and was on probation at the time police say he killed Robinson.
"He was convicted in 2009 for two counts of burglary in the first degree and one count of robbery in the first degree, and he received sentences of 20 years split to serve four years. Which means he just got out of prison earlier this year," Phillips said.
The prosecution is seeking to have Harris' probation revoked and for him to serve the remainder of the sentences on the 2009 charges.
