Leah's Murder: Suspect Bonds Out of Jail

Newschannel 6 has learned Elton Carroll Blair, one of the three men arrested for the murder of Leah Martin, has bonded out of the Young County Jail. Officials in Young County told our crews he paid his $1.25 million bond without a reduction. However, the percentage he paid to be released is not known at this time. 


     The Young County District Attorney says Blair also has bond conditions that include an ankle monitor, travel restrictions and a curfew among other things. Blair will be monitored 24 hours a day with his ankle monitor, according to the Young County Sheriff's Office.  

He also has to stay within Young County at all times, a will have to check in with his bond supervisor once a week. The news has shocked family members and loved ones of Leah Martin.

"I would like to know where he's at every second of the day," said Billy Martin, Leah's father. "Just to make sure. But we're gonna have people watching."

  We do not know exactly how Blair was able to come up with the money before the reduction hearing. However, Newschannel 6 went to the site of what used to be Blair's Collision & Auto Repair shop Thursday. 

Newschannel 6 learned that the shop was purchased this week. Thursday was the first day of operation under a new business name of Ole Blue's Garage.
 

"It's kind of annoying," said Martin. "It's really upsetting, but you know, people are entitled to bond, that's their constitutional right."
