Burglary suspect Stephen McDaniel, the neighbor of homicide victim Lauren Giddings, will remain in jail for at least another week.
Bibb County District Attorney Greg Winters says he expects a bond hearing for McDaniel on those two burglary charges will be held next Thursday, July 14. He expects that hearing will be set by a Superior Court judge Friday.
Macon police have named McDaniel as a "person of interest" in Giddings' killing, but have not called him a suspect.
He's now in the Bibb County jail without bond, facing two burglary charges that are unrelated to the Giddings case. Police say he's accused of stealing "personal items" from neighbors more than a year ago in the Barristers Hall apartment complex that they both lived in. He was charged last week after investigators questioned him about the Giddings case.
McDaniel, 25 years old, lives in apartment 4 at 1058 Georgia Ave.; Giddings lived next door in apartment 2.
His attorney, Floyd Buford, has not returned phone calls from 13WMAZ.
