A judge Thursday suspended the $300,000 bail that had been set for El Sayyid Nosair, suspected of killing Rabbi Meir Kahane, and set new bail arguments for Monday, said a spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney's office.
State Supreme Court Justice Alvin Schlesinger set the bail Wednesday "over the objection of my office," said Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau. "We had asked that the defendant continue to be held without bail."
Suspension of Nosair's bail means that if he came up with the money, he would not be freed, said Morgenthau's spokesman, Gerald McKelvey. Schlesinger said they would reargue the bail issue Monday.
