Bond increased for Tipton man accused in Iowa City shooting

Bond increased for Tipton man accused in Iowa City shooting

A judge on Friday increased bond by more than seven times for a Tipton man accused in a shooting.
The bond increase approved by Judge Christopher Bruns came after a motion for an immediate bond increase was filed by Assistant Johnson County Attorney Elizabeth Beglin on Thursday.
Bond for Deondre Handley, 25, had been set at $50,000 cash surety. But Bruns on Friday made that a $350,000 cash only bond. He also set a bond review hearing for Tuesday.
Handley is accused of shooting a passenger in his vehicle while he was driving in the area of Sandusky Drive and Keokuk Street in Iowa City the night of July 28. Police say Handley shot the man in the head but the victim was able to get out of the vehicle and saw Handley holding a handgun with a laser pointed at him.
Handley then allegedly robbed the man of his pants, his cell phone, his shoes and $300.
The victim is expected to survive his injuries.
Handley was arrested a few days later and charged with Attempted Murder and 1st Degree Robbery, charges carrying a combined maximum of 50 years in prison. Records show he remained in the Johnson County Jail as of Friday afternoon.
