The man who was accused of murdering his then-girlfriend in Garland County is out of jail after his bond was reduced following a recent hearing.
Kevin Duck, 30, who was taken into custody in November after a warrant was issued for his arrest in the murder of Arkansas police dispatcher Dawna Natzke, is free after a judge lowered his bond from $250,000 to $150,000 on Monday.
Duck posted bond on Tuesday and was subsequently released pending trial. A spokesman for the Garland County prosecutor’s office confirmed the details.
Natzke was found dead in late December 2011 following a report that she had gone missing two days after she was seen leaving a holiday party with Duck. Natzke's body was found 10 days later and authorities confirmed it was hers on Jan. 3, 2012.
Duck told authorities that he and Natzke returned to her home after the party in Hot Springs Village and she was gone when he woke up.
