The 21-year-old college student accused of killing a Philadelphia real estate developer near Rittenhouse Square is home with his parents after posting bail last week.
A spokesperson for Michael White’s family told NBC10 the 21-year-old was released from jail Monday.
Two bail advocacy groups posted bail Thursday. The Philadelphia Community Bail Fund (PCBF) and The Philadelphia Bail Fund (PBF) teamed up to pay the $15,000 (10 percent of $150,000) needed to bail out Michael White as he awaits trial on 3rd-degree murder charges in the July 12 stabbing death of Sean Schellenger.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 30, according to court records.
