A response to a bail request has been filed in the Mark Woodworth case.  Woodworth’s Attorney, Robert Ramsey, filed a motion to set bond last week.  The state filed suggestions in opposition to the motion on Wednesday.  Ramsey filed his request after the high court vacated Woodworth’s murder conviction on Jan. 8.

Woodworth was suspected of the 1990 shooting death of his neighbor Cathy Robertson. Robertson’s husband, Lyndel was injured in the incident at their rural Chillicothe home.  Woodworth was 16 at the time.  He was indicted by a grand jury in 1993, convicted two years later, briefly released after a successful appeal and again convicted in 1999. He was sentenced to life in prison.  Ramsey has argued that the prosecution failed to make a substantial case and that evidence against another individual was excluded without cause.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has said the state would seek a third trial.
