Alpine - Terlingua murder suspect Tony Michael Flint was ordered not to come within 30 miles of the Texas-Mexico border at a bond hearing Friday morning in connection with the February 4 death of La Kiva Bar & Restaurant owner Glenn Felts.
It was the second bond hearing for the Terlingua river guide who has been charged with murder in connection with Felts death.
Last week, 83rd district attorney Rod Ponton sought to increase flintís bond to $400,000 from the $200,000 bond.
Ponton argued the bond was too low for the alleged crime, but 394th state judicial district Judge Roy Ferguson denied the motion and set certain conditions for flintís release.
On Friday, the judge added the condition that flint not go near the border.
Flint is being held in the Brewster County Jail in Alpine since his arrest on February 4.
The other conditions for flintís release Ė in addition to posting $20,000 of the $200,000 bond Ė is that he wear a GPS monitoring device, stay in Brewster County or contiguous counties, report weekly to a probation officer, not partake in alcohol or drug use, submit to periodic blood tests, and not possess or purchase firearms.
