MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A state appeals court says a Cullman County judge must consider a bond request by a father charged with killing the man who molested his daughter.

The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals ruled Thursday that Circuit Judge Gregory Nicholas must hear a motion to reduce the $141,000 cash bond set in the case.

Nicholas previously refused to consider the request, saying a district judge had to rule first.

The father is accused of murder and other charges in two shootings, including one that killed 59-year-old Raymond Earl Brooks in June.

Brooks pleaded guilty in 2001 and served more than two years in prison for sexually abusing the man's daughter.

The Associated Press doesn't identify victims in sex crimes, and it isn't naming the father to protect the daughter.
