No bond before trial for suspect in killing of UNM pitcher
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting a University of New Mexico baseball player outside an Albuquerque bar earlier this month will be held without bond pending trial.
A judge made that decision Wednesday during a court hearing.
Authorities say 23-year-old Darian Bashir is charged with an open count of murder in the death of Jackson Weller.
Witnesses told Albuquerque police that Weller was shot after he got into a fight at a bar on May 4 and the shooter fled the scene in a car.
Bashir was arrested last Saturday.
Weller was a 23-year-old right-handed pitcher from Keller, Texas who wasn't on the Lobos' active roster due to an injury.
He had transferred to UNM from Gateway Community College in Phoenix.
Weller's funeral was held Monday in Colleyville, Texas.
