Sarah Redden is accused of killing Dawn Huggins-Jones.

Nearly a year after she was arrested, a judge agreed Thursday to set bond for a 19-year-old woman charged in the high-profile murder of a mother of two.

WTVD-TV reported that Sarah Redden’s bond was set at $1 million.

Redden has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. She had asked for bond to be set at $250,000 so she could go home to her daughter after months in jail with no bond.

But Judge Donald Stephens told her if she wanted to see her daughter, she should have thought of that before deciding to associate with bad friends.

Stephens said she would be safer in jail until she testified in the other cases and they were settled.

Redden was 18 when 30-year-old Melissa Huggins-Jones was found beaten to death on May 14, 2013 at her apartment in Raleigh’s North Hills community. The mother of two’s 8-year-old daughter discovered her body.

    The children of the woman she murdered will never see their mother again, why does this woman think he has that right for her child.
    At 18 you know better and she should have been thinking of doing the best she could for her child.

    If she was an accomplice in the murder, she should serve just as long of a sentence as the others will, that she is going to testify against, regardless of her testimony.
