Prosecutors Admit They Are No Closer To Arresting Other Suspects In Dan Markel's Murder

SuspectsWTXL, State Attorney Pushing to Try Dan Markel Murder Suspects Together:

Two suspects in the murder of FSU professor Dan Markel had their first appearances Friday morning, facing new charges. ...

"I would like to try them together. I do intend to move forward on that. I don't know if I'll be successful with that," said Georgia Cappleman, the assistant state attorney. "In fact, the judge has indicated a little bit that I may be not be, so I don't know the answer to that question, but we'll leave that up to the court."

The judge set bond for both defendants at $200,000 each, despite the objection of Garcia's attorney.

Prosecutors say the new charges don't indicate they're any closer to arresting anyone else.
