Warrensburg murder defendant posts bond, but judge won’t let him out of jail

Ziyad Abid, a Saudi national who had been attending the University of Central Missouri, is charged with paying a former bouncer to kill a Warrensburg bar owner. Johnson County, Mo., Circuit Judge Michael Wagner has acknowledged he may be violating the Missouri Constitution, but he said in court that he is bothered that the government of Saudi Arabia provided Abid’s bond money — $2 million in cash.
