Pending approval of bond, Facilities Management employee could be released this week
A University of Arizona employee accused of murdering his wife will most likely return to work at the university if he is released on bond this week.
Last week, Pima County Superior Court Judge Leslie Miller lowered Facilities Management Office Specialist Ralph David McCormick's bond from $1 million to $250,000.
McCormick has $250,000 in property to post bond, and Michael Piccarreta, McCormick's defense attorney, said that they hope the judge approves it and that he is released this week.
McCormick's wife was beaten to death with a baseball bat and then burned until unrecognizable.
