MIAMI (AP) -A Miami judge will not free one of the suspects in the killing of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor.
Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy denied the bail request made by 20-year-old Jason Scott Mitchell.
Mitchell and three others from Lee County are charged with first-degree murder in the November shooting death of Taylor during a botched burglary at his Miami home.
Murphy ruled Friday that Mitchell was likely to flee prosecution and might commit more crimes if released. The ruling came after Mitchell's mother appealed to the judge to let him out pending trial.
Trial in the case is set for Aug. 25. Prosecutors have not yet said whether they will seek the death penalty.
