Mahmoud Yousef Hindi during his Nov. 2 pre-trial hearing.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Whether or not to set a bond became the issue in the case of a man accused of killing two men during a meeting.
Mahmoud Hindi is charged with killing Dave Merritt, 73, and Marvin Fisher, 69, at a Spring Creek Homeowners Association meeting on September 6.
In recent weeks, Hindi's attorney asked a judge to set bond which could allow Hindi to get out of jail until his trial.
During a pre-trial hearing on Monday, Hindi's attorney argued Hindi's case should be treated like any other murder case and that a bond should be set.
By law, all prosecutors have to do to keep Hindi behind bars until trial is to show strong evidence that Hindi is guilty - so prosecutors called the lead detective in the case to the stand. She testified Hindi admitted to the shooting during a police interview.
Still, the defense argued Hindi was being treated differently from similar homicide suspects.
Judge Fred Cowan sided with the prosecution ordering Hindi held without bond until trial.
