Judge revokes $2M bond for suspected Waffle House killer

Accused Waffle House killer Travis Reinking’s $2 million bond was revoked by a judge Tuesday after public outcry.

Reinking, 29, was arrested Monday for allegedly opening fire at a Nashville, Tenn., Waffle House — killing four people and wounding others — while wearing nothing but a green jacket.

Davidson County Judge Michael Mondelli didn’t say why he revoked the suspected killer’s bond, but it had been heavily criticized when set by another jurist Monday night. The $2 million represented $500,000 for each of the dead victims.

Reinking or his family would have had to post 10 percent — or $200,000 — for him to walk out of jail, local outlet WTVF noted.

Mondelli set a bond hearing for Wednesday, WGN-TV reported.

Authorities were still trying to figure out what Reinking was up to during the 35 hours between the fatal attack and his arrest.

The motive for the attack is still unknown.
