A Bond Condition hearing Friday morning could determine the fate of a Warrensburg man charged with murder.  Ziyad Abid, 23, is in the country illegally since being removed from the University of Central Missouri after charges were filed – causing him to lose his student visa.

If he meets the conditions of his bond, Abid would be turned over to the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  If that happens, there’s a chance Abid could be returned to his home country and would not face the murder charges.

Abid will appear in a Johnson County Courtroom at 10:00.  He has been charged with murder and armed criminal action in connection to the September shooting death of William “Blaine” Whitworth, 25.  Abid is accused of paying Reginald Singletary, 27, to kill the Warrensburg bar owner.

Singletary will next appear in court in August.  He is scheduled for a Jury Trial in September.
