Judge releases adults, teens charged in killing man in Flagstaff
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — An Arizona judge has released four people from jail who are charged with killing a 23-year-old man at a Flagstaff motel.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported the two young men and two teenage girls were released last month and are under the watch of pretrial services.
Police said the four were charged with second-degree homicide after a fight inside a motel room led to the death of Jaron James. Police said James was intoxicated at the time, and the four beat him to death.
All four have pleaded not guilty.
The conditions of the release require the four to be subjected to random drug tests, follow a 6 p.m. curfew and maintain a job or be enrolled in school.
The Associated Press does not generally identify minors charged with crimes.
