LAS VEGAS – There is more to know than a bus safety clip has shown about a 25-year-old woman who was accused of killing a 74-year-old man by pushing him off a public bus in Las Vegas, a lawyer defending the woman on a murder charge said Thursday.
Cadesha Michelle Bishop Attorney Michael Becker recognized intense media interest in what he called the tragedy. He said, "circumstances and events … not yet to be published" prior to Serge Fournier's death. Becker refused to provide specific information.
"Human bishop in no way intends to kill Mr. Fournier," the lawyer said in an email to The Associated Press. "We have decided to contest the charges."
Fournier died April 23 a little more than a month after falling face first from the regional transport commission's bus to a sidewalk near his home in downtown Las Vegas.
The Clark County coroner ruled his death for a murder due to his injuries.
Witnesses told the police that Fournier, who had a skates or collapsible shopping cart with him, had asked the bishop to get lost with other passengers.
Bishop appeared on Thursday with Becker's associate, Baylie Hellman, before a judge in Las Vegas who made a preliminary hearing of evidence in the case until July 17.
Peace of Peace of Las Vegas Karen Bennett-Haron left Bishop free of $ 100,000 ties with strict electronic surveillance.
The judge turned to a local public fate that Bishop was allowed to send bail with a statement taking note of another justice of justice and a fair justice signed on the bishop's arrest warrant and b all circumstances.
Bennett-Haron is enrolled in the Reich record "Notice to the public that the courts are fair and impartial."
Prosecutors have announced that they can bring the case to a grand jury before the preliminary hearing, which would be held to determine whether there is sufficient evidence that the bishop may be subject to trial.
Police released the security video on May 15, and said investigators were still seeking witnesses to the incident.
