Saluda murder suspect’s bond revoked

After being arrested in Polk County and charged with felony breaking and entering and larceny, Henderson County murder suspect Brandon Cody Lee Case’s bond was revoked.

Case, 24, of 2643 Macedonia Road, Saluda was ordered on Tuesday, Dec. 18 in Henderson County Superior Court to be held without bond by Judge Mark Powell.

Case was out on a $500,000 bond for the murder charge in Henderson County when he was arrested by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office on Dec. 7 for breaking into an outbuilding and allegedly stealing a generator worth $700 and an industrial drop cord.

He was given a $100,000 bond for the Polk County charges last week.

Case’s attorney, Roy Neill, told judge Powell that the new charges stemmed from a family squabble. Neill said Case was asked by his mother to get the generator from his grandfather’s property.

According to the sheriff report, Case and Amanda Maybin were arrested after they cut pad locks off a trailer at 719 Laurel Drive, Saluda, which is the home of Case’s grandfather. Officers found the generator and drop cord in the vehicle Case and Maybin were driving.

The grandfather said the items belonged to his son, Case’s uncle and were supposed to be locked up in the building.

Case was charged with murder in the Feb. 22 death of Joshua William Lindsay, also of Saluda.
