Hofer bond sliced in half; reckless homicide defendant unlikely to be released

EFFINGHAM — Bond has been cut in half for an Effingham woman accused of DUI and reckless homicide in connection with the traffic death last December of a Watson teenager.

But if testimony from Melly R. Hofer's sister during Tuesday's bond reduction hearing is any indication, the 35-year-old Hofer won't be getting out of jail any time soon.

More on this story will be posted both online and in Wednesday's print edition.
