Prosecutors: Charged With Murder, Trevino A ‘Flight Risk’
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — While the search for Kira Trevino’s body continues, prosecutors say her husband, who was charged with her murder, poses a flight risk.
A judge agreed with prosecutors Thursday and refused a request from the defense to lower Jeffery Trevino’s bail.
His bail remains at $1 million.
Prosecutors say they believe Trevino is a flight risk because he called his family from jail and asked them to bring him a briefcase that had his passport in it.
Trevino was not aware that police had already confiscated it.
Also revealed in court on Thursday, evidence shows the blood splatter found in the Trevino bedroom matches the DNA of the victim.
The next court date is set for March 29. A plea could be entered at that time.
