Marshall Doran

RALEIGH, N.C. – A college student accused of killing two Good Samaritans on Interstate 40 during a winter storm last month was in court Thursday as a Wake County judge decided to lower his bond.

WTVD reported that Marshall Hudson Doran, of Kure Beach, was originally charged with two counts of second-degree murder following the Feb. 13 incident and a magistrate set his bond at $5 million.

The charge was later lowered to felony death by a motor vehicle, and his bond was reduced to $500,000.

The 21-year-old’s bond was lowered again to $400,000 during a bond hearing on Thursday.

Authorities took Doran into custody after they found his Volvo in Raleigh.

Police said it was the same car that fled the scene after hitting 39-year-old Larry Kepley of Winston-Salem and 34-year-old Nathaniel Williams.

Officials said the victims tried to help drivers who lost control on the snow-covered interstate around 9 p.m. near the Wake-Johnston County line.

    Why the hell are we reducing this persons bond?!! They committed a crime when they left the scene. The system is seriously broken. This person is a criminal and needs to be behind bars. Simply amazing…

    What a joke….this kid dint even bother to stop and check on the people he hit but inside tried to flee and here the judge is lowering his bond by the minute in 100K increments. Goes to show you that the judges are just as corrupt as the people who drive our streets daily. My opinion (even tho it doesnt count for much) is bring back the eye for an eye technique and forget the court system.

    The NC Judicial system is a joke 100% and all corruption like the US Government.
