Guam - 40-year-old Jimmy Chin Song appeared in the Superior Court of Guam this afternoon, asking to be released on the $50,000 bail he previously posted. When Song was indicted on manslaughter and aggravated assault charges for the death of 27-year-old Yunmo Ku, the bail amount increased to $250,000.  

Ku died from a single blow to his head when the two men allegedly argued outside the Sing-A-Song Cafe in Harmon last month.

This afternoon the defense's request was denied.

Song remains behind bars, waiting to find out when he will go to trial during his next court hearing, scheduled for August 9.
