HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia man accused of gunning down a county sheriff has been denied bail ahead of his murder trial.
 
Tennis Melvin Maynard sought possible release terms at a Monday court hearing.
 
Defense lawyer Richard Weston told Circuit Judge Paul Farrell that he's seen no evidence of premeditation.
 
The 37-year-old faces a tentative Oct. 21 trial date on murder and other charges in the April slaying of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum.
 
Maynard allegedly shot Crum to death in a downtown Williamson parking lot. The sheriff was eating lunch in his police cruiser.
 
After a brief vehicle chase, authorities say Maynard pulled a gun on a pursuing deputy who then shot and wounded Maynard.
 
Prosecutor Michael Sparks cited those allegations and how Crum was shot twice in the head.
