Monday a judge is expected to rule on whether or not murder suspect Lucas Goodrum will be set free on bond. If he is Goodrum's attorneys are asking that he placed on home incarceration.

Home Incarceration is a program that can be used as a condition of bond or as another option besides being in jail. Proponents of the program say it saves taxpayers money and helps with the overcrowding problem in the jails. But critics say there is always a chance offenders can committ crime when they're not in jail. Currently there are about 20 people enrolled in the program in Warren County.
