A Las Vegas-area man, who is charged in connection with the kidnapping of a Danville man that was killed four years ago, will remain in federal custody for the time being, a judge ruled Monday afternoon. A lawyer for Aron L. Ethridge, 42, of Henderson, Nev. said he would not fight the government’s request for the defendant to be detained, but reserved the right to later seek his possible release. Chief U.S. District Court Judge Geoffrey W. Crawford did agree with the request by defense attorney Mark Kaplan that he would not have to show any change of circumstances before filing a motion to free Ethridge. Any future request for release would be treated as the response to the initial detention motion the government filed, Crawford said.
