OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — An attorney says a bond hearing is set for next week for a man charged in the slaying of a University of Mississippi student.

Farese tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that he requested the bond hearing Wednesday after talks with District Attorney Ben Creekmore’s office. Farese says he will request a “reasonable bond” during the Aug. 22 hearing.

Kostial’s body was found July 20 near a lake about 30 miles (50 kilometers) from the university’s campus in Oxford. Her funeral was held July 27 in her hometown of Kirkwood, Missouri.
