A motion to deny bond to Brandon Theesfeld has been filed by District Attorney Ben Creekmore. Reports surfaced Thursday night that Creekmore had filed the motion to deny the 22-year-old bail, who is facing a murder charge in the death of Ally Kostial.

The motion was filed earlier in the week, ahead of Theesfeld’s initial court appearance, according to co-counsel Tony Farese.

“They did that initially with their standard request at the beginning before the agreement to not hear the bond hearing until a later date,” Farese told the EAGLE on Friday morning.

Theesfeld has been held at the Lafayette County Detention Center since July 22, when he was booked on the charge of murder. On July 23, the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Theesfeld had been charged in the murder of Kostial.

Officials at the Lafayette County Courthouse told the EAGLE on Friday morning the case file has since been sealed. The Associated Press reported Theesfeld’s case will be heard by a grand jury. The final grand jury meeting in Lafayette County this year will take place Aug. 27 through 30, but it is not known if this case will be presented during that period.
