WAGONER — An Oklahoma war hero accused of murdering a relative was released from custody this week after posting a $50,000 bond.
Maxx Robinson had been held in the Wagoner County jail since June 9 on charges of first-degree murder in connection with the April 1 shooting death of his uncle, Bill J. Cline Jr., during an altercation at Cline’s home in Porter.
Associate District Court Judge Dennis Shook initially ordered Robinson held without bail.
During a hearing Monday, Robinson’s attorneys argued their client was neither a threat to the community nor a flight risk and should be released on his own recognizance. Shook denied that request, but did agree to set bail.
Robinson was released later that day after a sympathetic bondsman agreed to provide the bond money at a discount, said Kirsten Bernhardt, Robinson’s court-appointed attorney.
“He’s a hero and he’s going to stay and get cleared of these charges,’’ Bernhardt said.Decorated Oklahoma National Guard soldier charged in... Oklahoma National Guard veteran faces murder complaint
