Marks appears in court for murder charge | News
HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (WFIE) - Judge James Brantley will decide June 24th on whether to reduce the $500,000 cash bond for Brandon Marks, the 18-year-old charged with murder, first degree assault, and operating a motor vehicle under the influence. Marks was in court today. All of the charges against Marks stem from an accident on KY 254 earlier this year in Madisonville.
Authorities accuse Marks of striking another vehicle driven by Brittany Clemons, while intoxicated. Clemons later died from multiple force trauma. Her boyfriend, who was in the passenger seat, was also injured in the accident.
Earlier this year, Hopkins County Court officials determined Marks would stand trial as an adult. He was 17-years-old at the time of the accident.
