No bail for 2 charged in Philadelpia building collapse
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - December 10, 2013 (WPVI) -- A judge has ruled that two men facing charges in a building collapse that killed six people will remain behind bars until their next court date in February.
Municipal Judge Patrick Dugan on Tuesday denied bail requests from lawyers for Griffin Campbell and Sean Benschop, the demolition contractor and equipment operator charged in the June 5 collapse.
An unsupported brick wall of a four-story building being demolished crashed down onto a smaller Salvation Army store, trapping shoppers and workers in rubble. Fourteen people were also injured.
Campbell faces six counts including third-degree murder and Benschop is accused of involuntary manslaughter and other charges.
They will remain in prison until their preliminary hearings on February 18.
