"lighthearted approach" to the proceedings. and that judge left open the possibility that a bond could be set next week... we support them and we dont want a bond matthew kinne commited murder and we do not want him out... we support them and we will stand by them... and we will be direct that we do not support a bond.. now with a bond possibly on the table for a man accused of murder, family and friends of clayton are left with more questions than answers. wtva's evan hensley sat down with clayton's family today. he joins us live in oxford with their reaction. and it all happened here at the lafayette county courthouse where kenne appeared before a judge his bond hearing was delayed to provide for more time to discuss bond but after the hearing, the family of dominique clayton shared their frustrations.... ."
