Anna Benson Denied Bail Due to a 1996 Murder Charge


The former exotic dancer will remain in jail for armed robbery charges against her ex-hubby Kris Benson.

Former baseball celebrity wife Anna Benson could have been temporarily released on bail on Friday, August 2 for the armed robbery charges filed against her after a July 7 incident involving her ex-hubby, Mets pitcher Kris Benson. But murder charge filed against her back in 1996 made the judge keep her in jail, believing she may be a flight risk.

The 37-year-old former FHM model is being held for allegedly barging into the home of his estranged spouse with a gun, a knife and a metal baton, asking $30,000 from him and threatening to harm him if he did not give in to her demands. A court-appointed lawyer tried to get her released on a $50,000 bond.

However, a previous record where the then-Anna Warren was charged for the murder of 18-year-old Michael Evans from Tennessee ultimately made Judge C. LaTain Kell decide that it would be best to deny her bail and keep her in prison. Although the case against her was eventually dismissed, the judge felt she could be a flight risk and a threat.

Benson's attorney Rick Christian claims his client is asking to be released so she could get evaluated for mental and substance abuse. But the Judge Kell believes there's no evidence showing that she won't leave the state of Georgia is she were to be granted bail. Benson faces a five-count indictment that includes burglary, aggravated assault, and firearm possession while committing a felony.
