A judge in Flagstaff is denying a defense motion to send the case against accused NAU shooter Stephen Jones back to a grand jury to re-determine probably case in the case.  Prosecutors tell the judge that this hearing should not be a mini-trial where they try the case before jurors have the change to hear any of the evidence.

The judge denied defense arguments that important evidence about what happened that fateful night was not presented which would warrant remanding the case back to the grand jury.  Jones admits to fatally shooting one student and wounding three others, but he claims he fired in self defense.
