ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The teenager who is accused of murdering Santa Fe High School basketball star JB White will remain in custody prior to a trial.
A judge ruled that Estevan Montoya would pose a threat to the public if he were to be released.
Montoya is accused of shooting White at a party in Santa Fe County in August.
He was identified as the shooter by witnesses during a pretrial hearing, where a judge ruled that there is enough evidence for the case to go to trial.
Montoya has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges including first degree murder. A trial date has not been set.
