WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A U.S. Magistrate judge granted a man awaiting trial on federal drug trafficking charges special conditions to say goodbye to his fiancée and young daughter who were recently killed.

Judge Dave Le Brannon ruled Thursday that David Chiddo may have time with his family’s cremated remains at his attorney’s office at the discretion of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Police believe 53-year-old Nilda Sheffield fatally shot her 30-year-old daughter Elizabeth Flores and grandchildren Xavier and Sofia on June 27 before killing herself.

The Palm Beach Post (https://pbpo.st/1NY8SxM ) reports attorney Flynn Parker Bertisch was denied a request to have Chiddo attend Thursday night’s memorial service. The U.S. Attorney’s Office opposed any kind of visit, citing Chiddo’s criminal history.

Chiddo has been in custody since June 4 and faces an Oct. 5 trial.
