Ashley Esselborn Biography
Ashley Esselborn, 21, of Wichita Falls, asked Judge Jeff McKnight Court to reduce her bail from $100,000 to $50,000 on December 9.
A former Texas Hooters waitress facing murder charges had her request for lower bail denied last week, even though she told the judge she could cover the proposed amount with her earnings from OnlyFans.
She claimed that she had $8,000 in an account blocked from charging subscribers $12 per month on the adult content website and was working with the corporate office to gain access to the funds.
Judge McKnight denied Esselborn’s request. Her bail was previously lowered from $1 million to $100,000 in July.
Esselborn was arrested and charged
Esselborn was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on May 24 in connection with the beating to death of 23-year-old Zachary Wood four days earlier.
According to an affidavit, Esselborn confessed to being present at the Brown Street house where her boyfriend William Bell, Ronnie Lang and Payton Mackenzie Collier attacked Wood. She told police the confrontation began when she and Collier accused Wood of stealing money and drugs from them.
