Logan County DA seeks to recover bond of Oklahoma murder suspect accused of employee murder

GUTHRIE, Okla. (KFOR) – The Logan County District Attorney is asking a judge to revoke the bond of a former council member Guthrie, who was accused of shooting his employee dead.

Daniel Triplett accused of shooting Brent Mack, and then buried his body under a septic system they were installing.

Mack has was found buried under the septic tank on October 22.

Surveillance footage shows both Triplett and Mack driving to the work site last September, but only Triplett left the scene.

On October 25th, Triplett has been charged with first degree murder and disposing of a body.

He was released from custody after he was handed over $500,000 bond on December 7.

“Everybody has the right to a bond hearing, no matter what crime they are charged with,” said attorney Ed Blau. “And in this particular case, I understand that the judge heard the evidence and the judge, based on the totality of the circumstances, made his decision.”

Attorney Blau was not involved in Triplett’s case, but offered his expert advice on the terms and conditions of the bond.

Triplett is only allowed to leave the house to get medical care, see a lawyer, or attend court dates.

However, Attorney Laura Austin Thomas of Logan Co., claimed Triplett violated the conditions of his bond.

According to court documents, Triplett visited Oklahoma City Waffle House on December 15, a convenience store and Guthrie bank on January 4.
