TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A federal court spokesman says the man arrested in last week's killing of a deputy U.S marshal in Tucson has been held without bond pending a grand jury hearing.

Cosme Lopez of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Arizona says a federal magistrate on Tuesday ordered Ryan Phillip Schlesinger to remain behind bars.

The warrant for Schlesinger's arrest late Thursday accuses him of first-degree murder of a federal officer.
