A Jamaican judge has ordered reggae star Bounty Killer to remain behind bars until his trial on charges of assault next week (14Apr10).
Killer, real name Rodney Price, was arrested on Monday (05Apr10) amid allegations he attacked his girlfriend during an altercation at his home in Kingston. Reports suggest the incident took place when she tried to break up with him.
The troubled star was arraigned in court on Wednesday (07Apr10) and his request for bail was denied after the court heard he had allegedly threatened his partner via phone while he was in custody.
Bounty Killer is also facing prosecution on previous charges of drug possession, illegal firearms possession and unlawful wounding and assault, according to the Associated Press.
