Murder suspect posts $1 Mil bond, but guns keeping him in jail


A cache of guns is keeping a murder suspect in jail, even though he has posted a $1 million bond.

Court records show 33-year-old Andrew Beard came up with the bond just days after his arrest last week. But today a judge signed an order holding the bond insufficient after police disclosed Beard has 18 firearms in his Rowlett home.

Former prosecutor Toby Shook says the guns have to go before Beard can get out.

Beard is accused of killing Alyssa Burkett outside a Carrollton apartment office days after she won custody of their child.

Police say Beard tried to disguise himself with fake skin-tone and a false beard.
