LAS VEGAS (AP) — A defense lawyer says there’s more to know than a bus security video clip shows about a murder case against a woman accused of killing a 74-year-old man by shoving him off a public bus in Las Vegas.
Attorney Michael Becker, representing 25-year-old Cadesha Bishop, said Thursday that unspecified “circumstances and events” that have yet to be made public preceded Serge Fournier’s death.
A judge rescheduled a preliminary hearing of evidence for July 17.
Fournier died April 23, a month after falling face-first from the bus to a sidewalk. Authorities ruled his death a homicide resulting from his injuries.
Witnesses told police Fournier had asked Bishop to be nice to other passengers.
The judge let Bishop remain free on $100,000 bond with strict electronic monitoring.
