ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) — A Rochester man, who facing charges of 2nd degree murder with intent not premeditated, was denied a motion of reduced bail on Friday, July 12.
Ayub Iman is being charged for his alleged involvement in the March 5 murder of Garad Roble.
Iman is represented by Attorney James McGeeney who asked for Iman’s bail be reduced to $100,000 instead of $1 million, saying that a Iman scored a score placing him as a moderate risk on his pre trial-test. McGeeney said he believes Iman is not a flight risk.
County Attorney Mark Ostrem asked the Judge to deny the motion because he said Iman is indeed a flight risk, and not appropriate for the pre-trial program.
The judge denied the motion and set Iman’s next court appearance for September 27 at 1:30 p.m. Iman was on pre-trial release when this decision took place.
Iman remains behind bars in Olmsed County.
