A federal judge on Monday denied bail to an Orange County private investigator accused of taking part in a jailhouse murder plot by alleged police killer Hung Thanh Mai. Daniel Bruce Watkins appeared before U.S. District Judge Linda H. McLaughlin, who deemed him dangerous and a flight risk. "The posting of a bond, even if in the amount of $500,000, does not lessen the risk to the safety of persons in the community if defendant Watkins is not detained," McLaughlin ruled.
