HUNTINGTON, WV (AP) -

A West Virginia man accused of gunning down Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum has lost a bid for bail ahead of his first-degree murder trial.

Tennis Maynard's attorney argued at a Monday hearing that he's seen no evidence the slaying was premeditated. Maynard has pleaded not guilty.

Lawyer Richard Weston said Maynard had followed a mundane routine that April morning. The 37-year-old went food shopping, and had groceries in his vehicle when he was captured.

Prosecutor Michael Sparks cited how Crum was shot twice in the head at close range as he sat in his cruiser. Sparks said Maynard tried to flee and threatened a deputy before he was shot and wounded.

Circuit Judge Paul Farrell denied bail pending a tentative Oct. 21 trial date on murder and other charges.
