BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) - A judge denied a request to reduce bond as he sent the case of a former Covington Catholic basketball star accused of rape to the grand jury.

Jacob Walter, 18, was in court for a preliminary hearing on his rape and sodomy charges Monday.

Once again, graphic details of the woman's accusations were read. Walter had no expression on his face.

Walter's attorney asked for the bond to be reduced from $250,000 to somewhere between $100,000 to $125,000. The judge denied the request citing the severity of the charges.
