Prosecutors had asked for a $250,000 bond as they said the victim was found with a shoelace around her neck and clear signs of strangulation.
However, the judge said a bond cannot be set based on that information since Freeman was not charged with murder. If charges are amended as the investigation continues, the bond could be updated.
“Because the investigation is ongoing, we are limited on what can be said at this time,” Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido said. “However, when we have additional information from the investigation, we will be updating everyone.”
A probable cause conference is scheduled for November 9, with a preliminary examination is scheduled for Nov. 16.
