Bond reduction denied for Mother of ‘Baby Joe’

Local News

DICKSON CO., Tenn. (WKRN) – A Dickson County judge denied lowering the bond set for Krystal Daniels, charged in connection with the death of her five-year-old son Joe Clyde Daniels.

Daniels hung her head low after the Judge denied lowering her $1 million bond. Her lawyers wanted the bond lowered to $50,000.

Several special agents with the TBI were also in court.

The defense claimed no body or blood was ever found to prove that Baby Joe was hurt in any kind of way. They said Krystal’s confession of seeing her husband, Joe Clyde Daniels, beat the 5-year-old lifeless was done at a point in the interrogation where she was falling asleep from exhaustion.

The prosecution basically said absolutely not, saying she took part in a lot to hide her son’s murder. They said she had the intent to cover the truth from the minute they called 911.

The judge denied the bond lowering, saying Krystal faces some serious charges and with no family or job here, she proves a flight risk.

Her bond remained at $1 million and her trial date is set for next year.
