Judge keeps bond at $100K for Cedar Rapids man

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- A judge has refused to change the bond for a Cedar Rapids man accused of trying to kill his neighbors.

KGAN-TV reports the judge decided to keep bond at $100,000 for 42-year-old Joseph Pham. His attorney asked the judge to lower the bond at a hearing on Wednesday. A prosecutor wanted the bond increased to $1 million.

Pham is charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of intimidation with a dangerous weapon. He's accused of shooting Brian Wilson and firing at two others on Saturday.

Police say the shooting stemmed for a disagreement between Pham and Wilson. Pham's family says he snapped after enduring years of property damage, racial slurs and hatred.
