Judge again denies bond for Charlottesville beating suspect Dan Borden

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- A judge again denied bond Monday for the former Mason High School student accused of beating a black man at a white nationalist rally in August.

Daniel Borden, 19, is facing a charge of felonious assault after video and photos surfaced online showing several white men attacking 20-year-old Deandre Harris on Aug. 12 in a Charlottesville parking garage. Two other men, as well as Harris, are also facing charges in the incident. 

Borden's father tried to assure the judge that he would ensure Borden would return to Charlottesville for the trial, but prosecutors argued that he has no ties to the community, WVIR in Charlottesville reported.

Prosecutors said Borden was wearing a helmet with "killer" written on it while he beat Harris with a stake, WVIR reported. 

This was the third time Borden's case was continued since he was extradited to Virginia. 

Borden's next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 14, according to court records.
