LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge reduced bail for a man accused of posing as a religious missionary before attacking and robbing a Las Vegas man at gunpoint.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that Senior Clark County District Court Judge Nancy Becker reduced Abraham Austin Jr.'s bail on Wednesday to the same $150,000 amount as co-defendant Robert Estall II.

Austin and Estall remain at the Clark County jail in Las Vegas pending trial July 7 on first-degree kidnapping, robbery, battery and burglary charges that could get them life in prison in the June 2013 attack on Terence Delucia.

The men were arrested in August, and a Las Vegas judge initially set bail for each at $250,000.

Delucia testified the two men looked like Mormon missionaries in white dress shirts and black ties.
