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.

Deputy Marshal Chase White was shot that evening trying to deliver a fugitive warrant to Schlesinger for stalking a female police sergeant. White died at a hospital.

Schlesinger was arrested after a standoff at a Tucson home.
