Nigel Green, the man accused of murdering Carina Castellanos, was in court Friday asking a judge to reduce his bond from $1.5 million to something in the range of $150,000-$750,000. His request was declined.

According to the Corpus Christi Police Department, Green confessed to murdering Castellanos and even led detectives to a cornfield along I-37 and Highway 359 in Mathis where, in a ditch bordering the corn field, detectives found the remains of what they believe to be the body of Castellanos.

Police originally obtained a warrant for Green's arrest for aggravated assault family violence in connection with an incident that occurred June 10. Green was arrested by the U.S. Marshal's Violent offender Task Force on July 7 in San Antonio.

After Friday morning's bond reduction hearing, Judge Jack Pulcher determined that Green was a flight risk and denied his request. A status hearing was scheduled for Dec. 9.
