NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A judge refused to reduce the bond of Krystal Daniels, the mother of Joe Clyde Daniels. She appeared in court Thursday, where investigators reveled details in the case.

NewsChannel 5 first reported back in September that Krystal Daniels' attorney filed a motion for bond reduction. She's been jailed for more than a year on $1 million bond and is charged with aggravated child neglect.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents testified and for the first time we heard some of the evidence presented against Krystal.

Her husband, Joseph, who was also in the court, is charged with homicide in the death of 5-year-old Joe Clyde last April. His body has never been found.

The judge gave multiple reason for refusing the bond reduction. He said since she's been communicating with people from Kansas, she is considered a flight risk.

He also cited the severity of the charge against her and the high probability of conviction in the case.

Krystal was hoping to have her bond drastically lowered so she might get out of jail while awaiting her trial set for next year.

However, she said in an exclusive interview that she has no money – so she likely wouldn't have been able to make a lower bond.
