GREENVILLE, S.C. A man charged with murder after police say he lost control of his speeding Maserati, plowing into a house and killing a man, is expected to appear in court.
Pam Larson of the Greenville City Court Clerk's Office says 36-year-old John Ludwig Jr., formerly of Lincoln County, Ga., is to have a hearing this afternoon on a possible bond violation.
Ludwig's bond was set at $300,000 earlier this month but was revoked after he wrote on his release papers. Bond was reinstated after Ludwig spent three days in jail and he was released.
Ludwig said he was trying to clarify the terms of his release when he wrote "no electronic monitoring" and "no porch arrest."
Authorities say Ludwig was driving over 85 mph on April 25 when he lost control and 62-year-old Frederic Bardsley died. Ludwig's attorney says he swerved to miss deer.
