Homicide defendant released on signature bond

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A man accused in a shooting that left two men dead and three others injured in Milwaukee has been released from jail on a signature bond.

The move has some city officials questioning why the defendant is out of jail. Twenty-seven-year-old Mario Lovert Granville is charged with party to reckless homicide and endangering safety in the shooting which prosecutors say was the result of a family dispute.

Alderman Bob Donovan says the defendant’s signature doesn’t mean anything and that Granville is out “roaming the streets of Milwaukee.”

Prosecutors tell the Journal Sentinel there are serious concerns about meeting the reasonable doubt standard in the case because of some forensic evidence that may conflict with witness accounts. That evidence came to light after charges were filed.
