A judge in New Hampshire is weighing whether the suspect in a deadly shooting should be freed on bail.
Thirty-four-year-old Justin Moura is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Tanya Hall. WMUR-TV reports a Tuesday hearing focused on the circumstances, as Moura has admitted to firing the fatal shot.

Prosecutors say Moura shot Hall in the back as her boyfriend, Jeremy Winslow, drove away from a confrontation outside of a bar on March 2. Defense attorneys contend Moura accidentally fired his gun, and say Moura told them that Winslow threatened him.
Moura’s attorneys say he is cooperating with the case.
The judge says there would be another hearing to determine the bail amount if she rules against the state’s request for no bail.
