KMOX's Brian Kelly was the only reporter in the courtroom for Friday morning’s bond reduction hearing.

Dominic Yocco, 19, spoke briefly with his attorney, who then told the judge he was waiving the bond reduction hearing. He also waived the perliminary hearing which had been scheduled for next month. 

The attorney, Thomas Kissell, tells KMOX that since the case is going to the grand jury, today's actions will speed up the process.
