Man who shot boy in face has $1 million bond

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

The Dallas man accused of shooting an 8-year-old boy in the face had his bond raised to $1 million.

On Wednesday morning a judge heard from prosecutors who said accused shooter Brian Cloninger and his wife were less than forthcoming about their ability to raise money.

Earlier this month, the judge lowered Cloninger's multi-million dollar bond to $200,000 cash.

In court, prosecutors played recordings of jailhouse calls that they said prove Cloninger's relatives were able to pay the higher amount.

Cloninger now must pay $1 million in cash to bond out of jail.

The 46-year-old was arrested in September and charged with shooting 8-year-old DJ Maiden in the face at his apartment complex on Royal Lane.

The boy is recovering, but his family said he lives in fear.
