Bond Denied for Couey

John Couey's staying in jail. Police say he kidnapped and killed 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford last month, then left Florida, wandered through Savannah, and wound up in Augusta, where police caught him.

In a Florida courtroom yesterday, the judge denied bond.

The county sheriff and the girl's father both want the death penalty in the case.
