She said that's because Reeves didn't have an ankle monitor installed before he was released on $100,000 bond this week.

Brinson said he will go before the judge today at 1:30 p.m. to determine if his bond will be revoked permanently.

She wrote that she expects the matter to be resolved today.

The lawyer for a man accused of shooting a woman outside a Macon gas station is asking a judge to grant him bond.

Frank Reeves, 73, is charged with murder for allegedly shooting Linda Hunnicutt at the Murphy's Express on Gray Highway last month.

Today, Veronica Brinson asked Judge Howard Simms to grant him $30,000 bond.

She cited his ties to the community and his health. 

Brinson said, "We want him to be healthy for these proceedings. We want him to live through these proceedings. "

It is unknown whether Reeves has any specific medical issues, but he must use a wheelchair to get around.

The judge also heard from Hunnicutt's family, who argued against the bond.

One of Hunnicutt's daughters told the judge that her mother's life was worth more than $30,000.
