District Court Judge James Sarsfield said during the hearing that the man will remain in jail without bond, based on police reports that Lipford confessed to killing Matthews and the fact that the maximum penalty for murder is life in prison. He said he was concerned about the likelihood that Lipford would flee based on the penalty he could later receive.
