A Ramsey County judge denied a request Thursday from Jeffery Trevino's attorney to lower the murder suspect's bail from $1 million to $100,000.

Trevino, 39, is charged with two counts of second-degree murder for the death of his wife, 30-year-old Kira Trevino, after investigators discovered a large amount of blood evidence in the Trevino's home and Kira's car. Her body is still missing.

Prosecutors argue that Trevino is a flight risk. According to a monitored jailhouse phone call, Trevino asked his family to bring him a briefcase from under his bed that contained his passport, which had already been confiscated by police.

In another call, the Star Tribune says, Trevino told a family member that they shouldn’t put any of their houses up as collateral to bail him out of jail.

Trevino's attorney, John Conrad, argued Trevino is not a flight risk because he has family in the area, including a 14-year-old daughter, and has no criminal history.

More evidence revealed at the hearing indicates that a blood splatter found in the Trevino's bedroom matches the victim, KSTP reports.

Police are still searching for Kira's body. A tip line, 651-560-3277, was established to encourage anyone with information to come forward.

Trevino's next court hearing is scheduled for March 29.
