25-year-old Kenneth Twyman is one of Wisconsin’s Most Wanted. He has been captured by U.S. Marshals three times, all of which he has paid his way through and got out of custody though now he is awaiting trial for alleged homicide. Following the third time of escaping custody Twyman posted over $100,000 bail. The bail money was loaned to him from a known and convicted drug dealer, to escape sitting in jail before his murder trial.
His most recent charge comes from an incident on April 21, when Twyman shook hands with Tayvon Luckett outside a gas station before allegedly shooting him twice and killing him. Leading to charges of first-degree reckless homicide involving the use of a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony. Then along with the murder charges a warrant was issued for his arrest which was when he was captured and brought in and his $100,000 bond was set.
While he has been serving time for the last 139 days, since his arrest, a known drug dealer and friend of Twyman’s parents placed bail for him. He is set to be released on November 22 and has a known history of fleeing the law. The trial regarding his homicide charges is set for March 20, 2023. And while a federal grand jury is set to indict Twyman on drug and gun charges Wednesday it is not clear if that will affect his release date. Though to be clear this release date is due to bail being posted before the trial.
While the idea of bail being posted and a suspect walking free before a trial is a common thing in our justice system, many are wondering why this suspect was granted the option of bail with his track record and the charges against him being homicide.
