PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — The request to remove the ankle monitor from Curtis Reeves, the man accused of killing another man during a movie theater shooting in 2014, has been denied.

Judge Kemba Lewis denied Curtis Reeves' request on Friday, which would have allowed Reeves to have his ankle monitor removed and the ability to go wherever he likes as he awaits trial.

Right now, Reeves is able to go to church, the grocery store and the doctor.

RECOMMENDED:

Reeves, 76, was released on pre-trial bond five years ago. He's accused of shooting and killing Chad Oulson, 43, in a Wesley Chapel movie theater in 2014.

Before Friday's decision, Oulson's widow, Nicole said it would be unfair to her and her family if Reeves ankle monitor had been removed.
