SALT LAKE CITY -- A judge is refusing to allow a man to get out of jail to attend the funeral for his sister and her family.

Julio Inez Martinez' sister Veronica died along with her husband and three daughters in a car accident last week near Saltair.

Martinez is in jail, accused of stabbing his wife 20 times with scissors in front of their children.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Judge Denise Lindberg originally said Martinez could attend the funeral. But then she reversed her decision after an attorney for his children objected.
