Srebnik and Wirgau Arraigned, Bond Set at $500,000 for Both

Brad Srebnik and Joshua Wirgau appeared virtually in court today for their arraignment surrounding the murders of Brynn Bills and Abby Hill.

Both pleaded not guilty through their attorneys and bond was set at $500,000 for both defendants, but that may change in the future as more evidence is presented to Judge Alan Curtis. Currently, he is not legally allowed to deny bond. However, Wirgau and Srebnik are to remain imprisoned as they’re currently serving a two year sentence for an unrelated gun charge.

Alpena County Prosecutor Cynthia Muszynski along with the attorney general’s office plan to try Wirgau and Srebnik jointly. Srebnik faces two counts of first degree murder for the deaths of Bills and Hill while Wirgau faces only one count of first degree murder for Hill. They also face multiple other charges and could face up to life in prison with no parole if convicted.
