OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 20-year-old woman arrested in connection to a fatal Omaha shooting has been denied bond.

KETV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1z773EW ) Janessa Arias appeared for an initial court hearing Monday in which she was denied bond. She was arrested Saturday on a first-degree murder charge in last week’s shooting death of 46-year-old Ray Patterson at a north-central Omaha park.

At the hearing, prosecutors said Arias was at a fast-food restaurant with Patterson when she called her boyfriend about robbing the man. They say the boyfriend told Arias to take Patterson to a park, where the boyfriend could rob him.

Police responded to a report of gunshots in the area and found Patterson with gunshot wounds. He died Wednesday at the Nebraska Medical Center.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Arias.
