Judge orders $50,000 cash bail
The man accused of causing a gas explosion that severely injured two men in Farmington is now in custody.
Jonathan N. Reiher, 27, was charged last week with three counts of reckless endangerment, one count of stalking, one count of aggravated battery, two counts of battery, one felony count of damage to property, one misdemeanor count of battery and two counts of disorderly conduct.
A warrant for his arrest had been issued on Tuesday, Aug. 9. He turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday, Aug. 17.
Reiher made his initial court appearance on Thursday, Aug. 18, when Judge Raymond Huber ordered a $50,000 cash bond as a condition for Reiher’s release.
Adrian Gibbs, 39, and Doug Roggenbauer, 53, were injured in the July 22 blast that destroyed a home belonging to Reiher’s ex-girlfriend.
The two men are at Columbia St. Mary’s Burn Center, where they have undergone multiple surgeries for their burns.
A benefit to help support the men and their families will be held from 2-10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, at the VFW Hall, 244 Industrial Drive, Waupaca.
