DADE CITY, Fla. (WFLA.com) - The retired police captain charged with killing a man inside a movie theater asked a judge for modifications to his pre-trial release conditions Thursday.
Curtis Reeves, 71, bonded out of jail last month after a judge tossed out a previous ruling and decided he could wait for his trial from home.
One condition of Reeves' release required him to surrender his firearms to the Pasco Sheriff, his lawyer Richard Escobar, or a person deemed acceptable by the court.
Escobar requested the guns be stored with Sgt. Jarrett B. Seal, the commander of the Tampa Police Bomb Squad, at his home in Odessa, according to a motion filed Wednesday, however the judge ruled Thursday the guns will stay with Escobar.
