ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The man accused in a deadly road rage incident shooting will stay behind bars until trial.

That’s when Butler opened fire.

In court, the defense argued a lack of criminal history but prosecutors say the randomness alone should be enough to hold him. District Court Judge Bruce Fox agreed to hold Butler without bond.
