    Lineten Belizaire, 21, answered a few questions after bonding out of jail Thursday.

    The man accused of a triple murder in Lauderdale Lakes said he was “just glad to be out” after being released from jail for a second time Thursday.

    “I’m just glad to be out. I ain’t really got much to say,” Lineten Belizaire told NBC 6. “Any further questions, y’all can really talk to my lawyer.”

    [MI] No Bond For South Florida Man Arrested Twice in Connection to Triple Murder
    A judge refused to give a South Florida man bond on Monday after he was arrested a second time in connection to a triple murder. Lineten Belizaire, 21, was arrested last week on three counts of second-degree murder, the Broward Sheriff's Office said. His lawyer, Alexander Michaels, called the arrest a "political move."

    Belizaire, 21, bonded out after a court hearing Thursday – two days after a judge set his bond at $75,000.

    He was arrested in January for the shooting deaths of two women and a child in a Lauderdale Lakes apartment. He has pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder with a firearm in the deaths of 21-year-old Octavia Barnett, 25-year-old Natasha Plummer and her 6-month-old child Carlton Stringer Jr.

    During a brief Broward court appearance Tuesday, Judge Carlos Rebollo advised Lineten Belizaire, 21, that he was arrested for three counts of second-degree murder. "I do find probable cause to detain him for these offenses. A capias has been previously issued. He's detained without bond on all counts," the judge said.

    He was freed in March after a grand jury refused to indict him on first-degree murder charges. But investigators re-arrested him last week, saying they had new evidence in the case.

    Belizaire is due to be arraigned on Monday, according to online Broward court records.
