COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

James Brammer Kester appealed to a Richland County judge that his $5 million bond be reduced.

Kester, according to Columbia Police investigators, hit 12 mourners at Greenlawn Cemetery in July as a grudge against the state Department of Mental Health. 

The woman being laid to rest that day was a long-time DMH employee.
