Wagner, through his attorney Wayne Hill of Houston, pled “not guilty” to the three charges. During Wednesday’s proceedings, Standley set an additional bond for Wagner in the amount of $50,000 on Wagner’s recent indictments for Murder and Manslaughter. Wagner was then taken into custody in court by deputies with the Polk County Sheriff’s Department until he could post bond. Wagner had previously made bond in the amount of $250,000 following his initial arrest for Failure to Stop and Render Aid on September 26, 2021. In addition to the new bond amount, Standley added conditions to all of Wagner’s bonds that he not drive any motor vehicle, report monthly to the Polk County probation department, submit to random drug and alcohol tests, and maintain a curfew at his residence between 8:00 pm and 6:00 am. The next court setting in the case was scheduled to be held before Standley on Tuesday, November 29, 2022.
