Heather Elvis murder suspects' bond hearing delayed by one hour

CHARLESTON, SC (WMBF) – The bond hearing for Tammy and Sidney Moorer is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Friday morning in Charleston.

WMBF News will have cameras in the courtroom and is live-streaming the proceedings on WMBFNews.com.

The hearing was originally scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday morning, but according to a clerk for Judge Markley Dennis, it was moved to 10 a.m. Friday morning instead.

According to the motion filed by Kirk Truslow, defense attorney for Sidney Moorer, "Defense counsel has had the opportunity to review the discovery provided. The discovery provided not only contradicts the State's representations at the initial bond hearing, but further establishes that Sidney Moorer could not be legally convicted of the crimes charged."

The hearing will be the couple's second attempt at bond. Tammy and Sidney Moorer are both charged with murder and kidnapping, among other charges, in connection with the disappearance of Heather Elvis. The 20-year-old Horry County woman was last seen in December 2013.

Greg McCollum, defense attorney for Tammy Moorer, said he plans to file a motion Friday for a reconsideration of the gag order. McCollum said he does not know if the gag order will be discussed at the January 30 bond hearing but said he will be prepared to discuss it. The order has prevented attorneys from both sides from releasing new information about the case, and the upcoming murder trial.

Last year, Sidney and Tammy Moorer were denied bond for their murder charges.
