Bond denied in homeowner association shootings

By

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A judge has refused to set bond for a Kentucky man charged with fatally shooting two members of his homeowners association.

Mahmoud Yousef Hindi of Louisville has been held without bond since he was jailed after the Sept. 6 shooting at an eastern Louisville church. Police say the shooting was spurred by arguments the 55-year-old Hindi had with the homeowners association about the property where he was living.

Hindi's attorney told Jefferson Circuit Judge Fred Cowan that defendants in similar murder cases are given a bond amount so they have an opportunity to leave jail while awaiting trial.

Cowan ruled Monday that Hindi will remain jailed without bond.

Louisville Police Detective Yolanda Baker testified that police have a statement from Hindi admitting he shot and killed the two men.
