SALT LAKE COUNTY -- A Kearns teenager accused of gunning down a classmate will stay in jail while he awaits his murder trial.
Attorneys for 16-year-old Ricky Angilau had argued it was unconstitutional to hold their client in the Salt Lake County Jail. They said Angilau instead should be held in a juvenile detention facility.

Angilau is accused of shooting 16-year-old Esteban Saidi during a gang fight Jan. 21.
