(KSL News) A judge increased bail for a Beryl man suspected in the killings of two men.
The bodies of Derek Davis and Chad Grijalva were found Nov. 16 buried in shallow graves in a shed where Martin Nelson was living.
Nelson has not been charged with the killings. He is being held in the Iron County Jail on charges of possession of a dangerous weapon, failing to register as a sex offender, and cultivation of marijuana.
Today, Judge John J. Walton granted the prosecution's motion to raise bail from $25,000 to $50,000--cash only.
Possible murder charges against Nelson could come next week, after the county attorney's office reviews evidence still being processed at the state crime lab.
