Bail for Brandon Craft, accused of murdering Adam Petzack and stealing his veterans benefits, will remain at one million dollars.

On Monday, Craft asked for a bail reduction, which was denied.

He also asked for a reduction in January.

Craft is charged with murdering disabled Army veteran Adam Petzack.

Petzack rented a small out-building from Craft on Gore Hill.

Craft told investigators that he killed Petzack after witnessing him performing an inappropriate sex act near his young daughter; detectives have testified that there was no evidence of that.

Prosecutors say after Craft murdered Petzack, he hid his body and started a bank account to steal Petzack's veteran's benefits.

They say Craft and his family moved to Washington shortly after they were questioned by police.

Craft was arrested in August and prosecutors say that since he's been in jail, Craft has been trying to influence witnesses testimony.

Craft's trial is scheduled to begin on August 28th.
