A Westminster man accused of arson in fires at Cockey's Tavern in Westminster and a nearby garage March 8 was granted a bail reduction in Carroll County District Court in return for his agreeing to postpone a preliminary hearing scheduled yesterday. Bail for Clarence E. Mullinix, 29, of the 200 block of E. Main St. was lowered from a combined $150,000 to $60,000 in the two cases against him. Prosecutor Brian DeLeonardo said he requested the postponement so he could seek grand jury indictments against Mullinix on May 4. He said that $60,000 was a substantial amount of bail and that, if released, Mullinix would be required to remain in pretrial supervision.
