VICKSBURG, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A Vicksburg teenager charged in the slaying of her stepmother has asked to be released on bail for the second time.

Attorney Marshal Sanders filed a motion this past week asking for Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick to release the girl on bail.

Patrick has set a hearing for 9 a.m. Friday.

The girl, now 17, has been held without bail in the Warren County Jail since December 2011 when her bonding agent revoked her $75,000 bail.

Sanders argues in her motion that the only reason the girl's bail was revoked is because her relatives could not afford to pay the bonding agent, according to court records.

District Attorney Ricky Smith is opposing the bail request.
