Father who killed his son because he was gay let out of jail after two years behind bars

A father who is accused of killing his own son for being gay has been placed on house arrest. Now the victim’s mother is speaking out.

In 2017, Giovanni Melton, 17, was shot and killed in Henderson, Nevada. His father Wendell Melton was arrested because police believed that he was responsible for the murder.

Now a judge has let Wendell Melton out on $200,000 bail and placed him on house arrest as he awaits trial.

“I felt betrayed,” said Veronica Melton, Giovanni Melton’s mother.

She said that she was at a March 22 bail hearing for Wendell Melton when he was let out of jail.

1. He's been in jail for two years without a trial?

And: "Wendell Melton was arrested because police believed that he was responsible for the murder."

So ..... where's the speedy trial?
