Daniel Shane Allen went before a judge during a hearing at the Greenwood County Courthouse. Authorities arrested Allen in Greenville on Oct. 22, 11 days after 42-year-old Lonnie Cogdill was found dead in his home along East Laurel Avenue with a gunshot wound to the chest. The 35-year-old defendant faces charges of murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime stemming from the incident. Prosecutors testified Thursday they think Allen was the shooter in the case.
Circuit Court Judge Frank Addy, who presided over the hearing, denied Allen's bond on the matter. He told the Eighth Circuit defendant's attorney she could re-petition the court for a bond to be set at a later time after the case develops.
