Lawyer: More To Story Than Video In Bus Shove Murder Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A defense lawyer says there's more to know than a bus security video clip shows about a murder case against a woman accused of killing a 74-year-old man by shoving him off a public bus in Las Vegas.

Attorney Michael Becker, representing 25-year-old Cadesha Bishop, said Thursday that unspecified "circumstances and events" that have yet to be made public preceded Serge Fournier's death.

A judge rescheduled a preliminary hearing of evidence for July 17.

Fournier died April 23, a month after falling face-first from the bus to a sidewalk. Authorities ruled his death a homicide resulting from his injuries.

Witnesses told police Fournier had asked Bishop to be nice to other passengers.

The judge let Bishop remain free on $100,000 bond with strict electronic monitoring.

Come back soon and know you won’t get ambushed by a paywall. Ever. That’s because members keep public radio accessible to all. Together, we answer to no one but you. Is that your kind of crowd? Great — then join us with a contribution of as little as $5 a month.
