Bond hearing held for Mark Jensen, man charged with wife's murder in 1998

KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A case that dates back more than two decades returned to a Kenosha County courtroom Friday, May 7. 

A bond hearing was held for Mark Jensen, a man whose conviction for the 1998 antifreeze poisoning of his wife, Julie, was overturned by the state Supreme Court. 

Jensen appeared by phone at the hearing in which his attorneys argued to have his $1.2 million bond reduced. 

Julie Jensen's brother spoke by phone, arguing against the reduction. 

"I believe that Mark Jensen would be a flight risk. And I don't want any threatening of witnesses that would show that this is a very strong case," said Paul Griffin, Julie Jensen's brother. 

The judge agreed. Bond stands at $1.2 million. 

The next court date for the Jensen case is June 25.
