Todd Goff, 24, has been in jail since his July 7 arrest in the strangulation of 22-year-old Tiffany N. Salter.
A senior judge granted Goff bond of $50,000 in July, but he had been unable to post bond because the sheriff required it in cash.
Assistant District Attorney Grant Usry filed the motion asking Judge Michael N. Annis to revoke the bond. On Thursday in Richmond County Superior Court, Usry said Goff has further proven himself to be a danger to the community, receiving several disciplinary reports since he has been in jail.
Defense attorney Pete Theodocion countered that the disciplinary reports concerned suicide comments and minor, nonviolent infractions at the jail.
Theodocion said the prosecution sought to have Goff’s bond revoked after his family raised the cash to post it. Though Goff was arrested eight months ago, Theodocion hasn’t received any discovery in the case because investigators haven’t sent the prosecutor their case file on Salter’s homicide, Theodocion said.
Annis said he revoked the bond because of the jail disciplinary actions and because a mental health evaluation has not been completed yet.
