Officials said Samuels showed up to a house where Willis was located on Dec. 22. After his third visit that day, Willis told Samuels to leave and then fatally shot him. 

Police confirmed to the publication that the bail is set at $4 billion. 

Willis’ bail might be the highest ever set in the U.S. 

According to CNN, Robert Durst’s bail was set at $3 billion in 2004 for evidence-tampering and bail-jumping charges.
