A request for nominal bond on behalf of a Duquesne woman charged with homicide for allegedly helping to purchase ammunition was continued Friday until a hearing could be scheduled.

Attorneys for Chalsee L. Hughes, 20, of High Street, had filed the bond motion after a preliminary hearing was rescheduled twice at the request of prosecutors. A motion was filed earlier this week for Hughes's release for lack of evidence, and Judge Al Bell ordered that the bond motion be continued until both matters can be addressed during the same hearing.

Hughes is accused of helping to purchase the bullets used in a Dec. 3 armed robbery in which Chris Fincik, 36, was shot to death in his Monessen home. She is charged with homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Assistant District Attorney Thomas Grace argued that homicide is a nonbailable offense, and Bell agreed.

Facing the same charges in the case, along with three counts of aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, is Earl V. Pinkney, 19, of Chestnut Street, Monessen. Last month, Pinkney and Hughes were ordered to stand trial by District Judge Joseph Dalfonso.
