YAKIMA, Wash. -- A judge denied the request to reduce bail for the man accused of helping murder Cynthia Kelly-Munzanreder outside a Union Gap theater.

Juan Ibanez Cortes' attorney asked the court Thursday to reduce bail from $2 million to $200,000.

Prosecutors argued Cortes is a danger to the community.

Cortes also has an immigration hold.

John Munzanreder is also held on $2 million bail. He faces 1st degree murder charges.
