An EMS worker who is accused of killing a patient sought to have her bond reduced in court on Wednesday. Peggy Finley is facing charges in connection with the death of Earl Moore Jr. in December.
According to officials, Finley and her colleague Peter Cadigan arrived at Moore's house and placed him face down on a gurney. They then tightened the straps across his back, which allegedly led to Moore's death.
An autopsy conducted on Moore revealed that the cause of death was compressional and positional asphyxia, which was a result of being restrained face-down on a paramedic transportation stretcher with straps across the back.
Finley appeared in court on Wednesday to request a reduction in her $1 million bond. However, the judge denied her request.
Both Finley and Cadigan have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. Finley is set to appear in court again on May 1.
