A judge denied bond Wednesday morning for the suspect in last Saturday's shooting death of a 76-year-old Omaha man.
Forty-one-year-old Ray Hubbard is charged with second-degree murder, use of a firearm to commit a felony and use of a firearm by a prohibited person. He is accused of killing his uncle, 76-year-old L.B. Liggins at North 24th and Pratt streets around 5:30 p.m. Liggins was taken to CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center where he later died.
Liggins' girlfriend, Mattie Smith, told WOWT 6 News Liggins was trying to break up a family fight when Hubbard shot him. She said Hubbard was not taking medication for a mental condition.
Bond was set at 10 percent of $100,000 for a felony domestic violence charge Hubbard was being sought for at the time of his arrest.
WOWT 6 News talked to Hubbard's daughter after court. She hopes the court will cut him a break. Raevyn Hubbard says, "He's family, family oriented. I mean, he's just trying to get his life back on track. He just needs help. That's it."
