The Ole Miss student charged with murdering St. Louisan Ally Kostial will ask a judge to release him during a bond hearing Thursday.

22-year-old Brandon Theesfeld has been behind bars in Mississippi since last month's shooting. Theesfeld's attorney said they will ask for a reasonable bond based on the defendant being a student. His parents and sister plan to be at Thursday's bond hearing and testify as character witnesses.

Investigators say Theesfeld shot 21-year-old Kostial several times and left her body in a rural area.
