Woman charged with capital murder gets $2 million bond

Lisa Leane Graham, accused in the July 6, 2007, death of her 20-year-old daughter, was granted a $2 million bond earlier this month, court records state.

Graham, 43, faces charges of capital murder for hire, tampering with a witness and bribing a witness, Russell County Jail officials said. On Sept. 23, Russell County Circuit Court Judge George Greene gave Graham the $2 million bond. The judge’s order came a little more than a week after a bond hearing, records state.

Graham has another $50,000 of bonds on her other two counts, officials said.

Margaret Brown, one of Graham’s attorneys, declined to comment on the case.

A truck driver found Stephanie Shea Graham shot to death July 6, 2007, off Ben Bowden Road, about 100 yards off Alabama 165 in south Russell County. She had been shot six times.

Kenneth Rognet Walton, 39, also faces charges of murder and capital murder in connection with the case. Walton is accused of committing the slaying. He had worked for Stephanie Shea Graham’s father, who is in the contracting business.
