WINTER HAVEN, Fla - A Polk County judge denied Vincent Madhavath of Winter Haven bond Thursday. He is a suspect in a murder-for-hire involving his wife of 10 years.
Family and friends gathered at his home in Eloise Point Estates before heading to his court appearance in Bartow. ABC Action News knocked on the door for comment, but the family declined to speak.
During his brief bond hearing, the 43-year-old did not speak.
His family members consulted with their newly retained attorney Robert Norgard following the hearing. Norgard could be heard explaining why the father of three was denied bond.
Norgard declined to comment on the case.
Madhavath was arrested Wednesday on charges of soliciting to commit murder and having a firearm while committing a felony.
