Judge denies release of former slaughterhouse CEO

An Iowa judge has ordered the former manager of a kosher slaughterhouse to remain in jail pending his trial on charges of harboring illegal immigrants, document fraud and identity theft. Magistrate Jon Scoles denied former Agriprocessors chief executive officer Sholom Rubashkin request for release Monday despite Rubashkin's promise to hire round-the-clock guards. Prosecutors say Rubashkin tried to tamper with evidence after his released from jail on Oct. 30. He was returned to jail after being arrested on the bank fraud allegations, and prosecutors say agents found passports and about $20,000 in cash and silver coins in a travel bag in his bedroom.
