URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Champaign County Court has set the bond for 17-year-old Ely Serna, at $1 million with special conditions. Serna is the teen accused in the January shooting at West Liberty-Salem High School.
Serna or his family would need to post 10 percent ($100,000) of the $1 million dollar bail to release him from detention.
If Serna makes bail, he would stay on house arrest with 24-hour supervision and no contact with anyone outside of his family, defense or doctors.
Serna was found to have probable cause on the two category one counts of attempted murder.
It’s not clear what will happen next, because of a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision. Serna is 17 and traditionally would bind over to adult proceedings, however new rulings may allow a amenability hearing.
On May 22, Serna was found “competent to participate,” by a Champaign County court.
