Shelby County prosecutors agreed to drop Richard and Cynthia Kelly’s bonds to $100,000. Both parents originally had a bond of $1 million dollars.

This comes after two requests from Richard Kelly’s attorney to have his bond reduced. According to the attorney, the family could not afford the $1 million dollar bonds.
