Brandon Kahl, 25, Lamar, has been released on $15,000 bond after his arraignment this morning in Barton County Circuit Court on charges of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the June 7 death of two-year-old Alexander Cole. Cole was the son of Kahl's girlfriend.
Bond initially had been set at $25,000, but it was lowered this morning. Special conditions were attached to the bond, including a stipulation that Kahl have no contact with anyone under the age of 17, and he must live with either his father, Terry Kahl, or his grandmother, Lucille Kahl.
The next hearing date for Kahl has not been scheduled.
