SOUNDBITE (English) Don Babwin, Associated Press: ++PARTIALLY COVERED++ "Today was Robert Crimo III's first court appearance since he was arrested on the 4th of July. This was what's called a bond hearing, where a judge decides whether to allow him to post bond or order he be held without bond. There wasn't much mystery to it. The prosecutors asked for no bond, and given he's charged with seven counts of first-degree murder, the judge was clearly going to order him held without bond."
