Man Accused Of Taco Bell Murders Released On Bond

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A judge has decided to release the man accused of killing four Clarksville fast-food workers during a botched robbery, less than two weeks after he was granted a new trial.

On Monday morning, a Montgomery County judge reduced David Housler's bond to $15,000. Under his release, he must live with his parents, and the bonding company must call him every night between 8 and 10 p.m.

Housler was convicted of four counts of murder in the 1994 shooting deaths of four Taco Bell employees who were killed inside the restaurant on Riverside Drive.

However, in late September, a judge overturned Housler's conviction, based on a long-standing claim that Housler had been "tricked" into a confession.

Housler was allegedly the getaway driver in the murders. The triggerman in the murders, Courtney Matthews, is serving four life sentences without parole.
