5th Richmond Hill suspect bonds out of jail

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The so-called fifth suspect in the 2012 south side explosion at Richmond Hill bonded out of the Marion County Jail Monday afternoon, jail records show.

Glenn Hults, 48, was charged earlier this month with one felony count of conspiracy to commit arson.

A judge agreed to reduce his bond Friday from $100,000 to $50,000. The bond is a ‘surety’ bond which required Hults to post 10 percent, or $5,000. He also agreed to wear a GPS monitoring device while awaiting trial.

Prosecutors allege that Hults was part of a conspiracy behind the explosion in the Richmond Hill neighborhood that killed Dion and Jennifer Longworth and damaged nearly 80 homes in November 2012.

Hults attorney, Ralph Staples, said Friday that his scheduled June 15 trial date would likely be delayed if Hults was able to post bond.

Hults is scheduled to appear in court again for a pre-trial hearing on June 10.
