(WHAS11) -- The disgruntled neighbor accused of shooting and killing two men at a homeowners association meeting is asking to be let out of jail.

Mahmoud Hindi - who's charged with murder - is requesting bond so he can be out of jail until his trial.

On Tuesday his attorney and the commonwealth agreed on a bond hearing date.

Hindi's bond was initially set at $1 million when he was indicted but the prosecution asked for him to be held without bond and it was granted for one reason. They thought he might have the possibility of coming up with that money. Hindi's attorney's are now fighting that, but the commonwealth maintains their opposition on why he shouldn't have the chance to be let out of jail.

“We felt as though there was a risk of flight of the defendant and it was a serious offense and no amount of bond would be enough to ensure the communities safety and his reappearance before the court," Ryane Conroy, assistant commonwealth’s attorney, said.

The hearing will be on Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. and the commonwealth will either ask for no bond or likely a high number. They wouldn't get specific, but we do know they didn't feel comfortable with the previous bond of $1 million.
