LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge rescheduled a preliminary hearing of evidence in the murder case against a woman accused of killing a 74-year-old man by shoving him off a public bus in Las Vegas.

Cadesha Bishop had new attorneys for her Thursday court appearance in the death of Serge Fournier.

Her lawyers didn't immediately respond to messages.

Fournier died April 23 after falling face-first from the bus to a sidewalk March 21. Authorities ruled his death a homicide resulting from his injuries.

The judge let 25-year-old Bishop remain free on $100,000 bond with strict electronic monitoring pending her next hearing July 17.

Police say they're still seeking witnesses.

Bus security video shows a woman shoving a man off the bus. Witnesses told police he asked her to be nice to other passengers.
