      Judge orders Brandon Barber to remain jailed

      FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A federal judge has turned away a request to get out of jail by real estate developer Brandon Barber prior to his trial for alleged financial crimes.

      Chief U.S. District Judge P.K. Holmes on Monday upheld a U.S. magistrate, who earlier ordered Barber to jail after prosecutors said he violated terms of his pre-trial house arrest.

      Barber is charged with bank fraud and money laundering in Washington County.

      Fayetteville television station KHOG reports (http://is.gd/36xdsj ) that new court documents allege that Barber exhibited a "flagrant disregard" for conditions of his home confinement.

      Barber is charged with four others in an alleged fraud scheme.

      His first trial is scheduled in September.
