Judge Raises Bail for Man Accused of 1972 Killing

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) – A Washington state man charged with killing a woman in 1972 has made bail again after the judge raised the amount to $1 million.

The Daily Herald reports the Snohomish County judge increased bail Wednesday for 77-year-old Terrence Miller after he was accused of planning to violate his release conditions by taking his wife bowling.

Miller has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Jody Loomis.

Miller was placed on home arrest last month after posting a $750,000 bond.

A phone call recorded from jail indicated that Miller had told his wife he planned to take her bowling.

His release conditions bar him from leaving his Edmonds home except in certain instances.

His lawyer argued against the higher bail, citing Miller’s compliance with release conditions.
