Judge McKnight denied Esselborn’s motion. He had a connection previously downloaded from $1 million to $100,000 in July.
Esselborn was arrested on May 24 and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the beating death of 23-year-old Zachary Wood four days earlier.
According to confirmation, Esselborn admitted to being at the Brown Street home where her boyfriend William Bell, Ronnie Lang and Payton McKenzie attacked Collier Wood. He told police the confrontation began when he and Collier accused Wood of stealing money and drugs from them.
In his confession, Collier told investigators that Esselborn did not participate in the beating, but cheered on others.
Collier is being held on $500,000 bond and Bell is being held on $200,000 bond. This was reported by KAUZ Ronnie Lang, who was facing an outstanding warrant for assault at the time of his arrest, pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 50 years in prison in September.
