The defendants age and his exposure to imprisonment are undisputed, and the court did not err in inferring an incentive to flee from these facts. Moreover, the district courts finding that the defendant has the means - and therefore the ability - to flee was not clear error.
Prosecutors are seeking a 150-year sentence. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 16.
