It was necessary to post bail in the amount of $ 20,000 (about $ 140,000 RMB). Despite the fact that Gerald's motive for attempting to kill his father is still unknown, the inquiry into his actions continues. According to the hospital doctor, his father is doing well and should be discharged shortly. Personal safety protection orders for the elderly have been approved by the local courts.
