Republican state lawmakers are calling for changes to bail reform laws in response to the case of human remains being found in a Babylon park.
Republicans from the state Senate and Assembly are backing a measure they say will make the charge of “dismembering a body” eligible for bail.
Under current law, prosecutors say the charge is considered a non-violent offense and is ineligible for bail.
Another measure was announced that would make it easier for judges to issue ankle monitors.
