SIOUX CITY, Iowa — A judge has increased the bail for a Sioux City man who was granted a new trial in the death of his 4-month-old daughter.
Bail was raised from $50,000 to $100,000 for 25-year-old Paul Hill, who is charged with child endangerment causing the February 2009 death of Tryniti Jo Hill. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1EFTT4Q ) prosecutors requested the increase, saying Hill might leave the area if released from custody. Hill's attorneys argued his bail shouldn't change because he had attended all his hearings prior to his original trial.
Hill had been found guilty in June 2010 and sentenced to 50 years in prison before he was granted a new trial in January, which is scheduled for Aug. 4.
