El Paso, Texas (KTSM) — One of the men accused of shooting and killing an El Paso teen near a westside park last summer may have an easier time getting out of jail.
The judge has kept bail for George Diamos at $1.5 million, but now he can put up property to get that bond. $750,000 in cash, and $750,000 in property: only 10 percent of the total is needed to bail out.
Saeed Nami, 18, was shot multiple times in August, police believe by Diamos and 21-year-old Geoff Bond after Nami allegedly refused to give them his backpack near the Palo Verde Park.
"So I think people like him shouldn't be able to get a bond reduction, they shouldn't be able to get out of jail they shouldn't be able to do anything because they have done so much harm to a family," said Isabel Nami, the victim's mother before the judge made a ruling.
Nami graduated from Franklin High School and was set to attend the University of Texas at El Paso in the fall.
Diamos is scheudled for trial in May, while Geoff Bond's trial is set for April 24.
