Prosecutor files motion to revoke murder suspect's bond

Posted: Updated:

MURPHYSBORO, Ill. -- Jackson County murder suspect Gaege Bethune will be back in court next Friday after the special prosecutor filed a motion to revoke his bond.

A jury convicted Bethune in June in the death of SIU student Pravin Varughese. The two men got into a fight on Route 13 in Carbondale in February 2014 and police found Varughese's body later that month, frozen to death in the woods behinds Kohl's.

On Monday, a judge threw out the conviction because of improper wording in the indictment.

Bethune will likely face trial again but a date for that trial has not been set.
