An accused killer will stay locked up until trial.

Last month, police say 32-year-old James Chavez shot and killed two men at the Circle K on University and Menaul. Police say DNA from a water bottle left at the scene helped them identify Chavez as the shooter. 

Chavez faces two counts of first-degree murder. Monday in court, Judge Cindy Leos ordered him held behind bars.
