Judge James Warren said Wednesday that Noel remains a possible flight risk and his connection to the Aryan Brotherhood makes him a poor candidate for the freedom that lower bail would bring.

Noel and Knoller, who is also an attorney, have been in jail since March after they were indicted by a grand jury in connection with the Jan. 26 death of Diane Whipple. Whipple was mauled to death by presa canario dogs Bane and Hera, who were in Noel and Knoller’s care.
