After reporting that Taxstone would be released on $500,000 bond and subjected to house arrest on Jan. 18, the judge has since denied the motion for bail. Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck agreed to the terms of Taxstone’s bail, but a day after the decision was announced, prosecutors persuaded Manhattan Federal Judge Lewis Kaplan to keep Taxstone in jail.

Prosecutors argued that Taxstone “posed a danger to the community” and that they have eye witness testimony that will “directly show” that Taxstone “at minimum fired the shot that killed” Ronald McPhatter, Troy Ave’s bodyguard.

The Daily News reports additional charges may be brought up against Taxstone.
