TUCSON –The man accused of shooting and killing a Deputy U.S Marshal was in court Tuesday.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for 26-year-old Ryan Schlesinger; it was waived at the request of the defense.
A judge ruled that Schlesinger will remain in custody due to him being a threat to the community.
His court date has not been scheduled.
White was a married father of four children from Peoria, Illinois. He was also a 3-year veteran of the U.S. Marshals Service assigned to the District of Arizona.
Community members have organized a series of “open mat” events and created a GoFundMe account to help White’s family.
