A-Murder Seppenfield MUG

Bond has been set at $250,000 for the Dawsonville man accused in the shooting death of a popular coach and father.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Herman James "Bo" Seppenfield VII, 50, remained in Dawson County Sheriff's custody.

Seppenfield was charged with felony murder, malice murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony crime in connection with the Nov. 22 death of Brandon Weaver, also of Dawson County.

Weaver, 37, died from shots fired at close range during a fight with Seppenfield in southeastern Dawson County.

The conditions of Seppenfield's bond were not immediately available, according to a spokeswoman for the Dawson County Clerk of Courts office.

Superior Court Judge Jason Deal on Monday also set a $35,000 bond for Seppenfield's codefendant Tory Jude Miguez, also of Dawsonville.

Miguez's charges include possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony crime against another person and two counts of aggravated assault.

According to his bond conditions, Miguez can have not contact with Seppenfield, the witnesses in the case or the victim's family. He must also wear an electronic monitoring device.

He also remained in custody as of Tuesday afternoon.
