Accused twice of trying to hire a hit man to kill someone, Gregory Allen Hess has a bail hearing today.
The first person Hess, 46, allegedly wanted killed was his estranged wife’s boyfriend. The hired hit man in that attempt turned out to be a police informant.
Following Hess’ first arrest on April 18 for soliciting homicide, he was able to post $10 million bail through a bondsman on May 30.
But, it turned out, he allegedly solicited a York County Prison inmate to kill the first hitman/confidential informant/now prosecution witness on the day he was arrested.
He was arrested on the second solicitation charge on June 11.
In the interim, questions arose about whether the bondsman who guaranteed the $10 million bail piece had the required assets to cover it.
Two independent York County bail bondsmen — Steve Schiding and Ed Saxe — were prepared to step in for Fabie, each posting $5 million, and allowing Fabie to withdraw.
Hess now is being held without bail on the second charge and the York County District Attorney’s Office has filed a motion to revoke his $10 million bail.
Judge Thomas H. Kelley VI now has called for a bail hearing, ordering all three bondsman, the DA and the defense attorney to be present.
