Another female neighbor said she’d spoken to him once or twice in passing and never thought anything unusual about him.

A Clarke County magistrate judge on Saturday morning denied Ibarra’s bond “for today” because the court does not set bonds.

Ibarra wore a red jumpsuit and shackles in court, and he nodded when translators spoke to him. His public defender said Ibarra understands the charges filed against him.

The 26-year-old suspect illegally crossed into the United States through El Paso, Texas, in September 2022 and was released into the U.S. via parole, three ICE and DHS, sources told Fox News.
