“He is clearly following the victim into the (parking lot) … and murdered him in cold blood,” Schurr said.

Bloebaum, 57, was arrested at the scene after telling police he shot Yousif.

Bloebaum's attorney, Carson L. Carter III, asked the judge to set bail because he said incarceration is a hardship for his client's family. Bloebaum's wife is confined to a wheelchair with arthritis.

“It is a huge burden because she needs so much care,” Carter said.

The victim's family was satisfied with the judge's decision to deny bail.

“I hope he will die in jail,” said a woman believed to be Yousif's mother.

The victim's aunt, who was removed from the courtroom for using expletives when Bloebaum walked in the courtroom, called the defendant a “murderer” when he left in handcuffs and shackles.
