Juan Lopez and Anthony Sigala were both in court recently regarding their bonds. The two have been charged in the beating death of a Kearny man.

Sigala was indicted on March 10 by the Pinal County Grand Jury for second degree murder. He was held on a $100,000 secured bond. According to Jim Knupp, Public Information Officer for the Pinal County Attorney’s Office, a motion was filed on May 22 by the Public Defender’s Office to “reconsider conditions of release” and a hearing was set for Monday, June 2, 2014. On May 30, Knupp said, the Deputy Public Defender filed a motion to vacate the release hearing “for the reason that the defendant has posted bond in this matter.”

Lopez was indicted on March 10 for aggravated assault, assault and threatening/intimidation. He was held on a $20,000 secured bond. Knupp said the Court denied his motion to modify release conditions on March 30, 2014, and ordered that the conditions remain as previously ordered. Lopez was scheduled to have a pretrial conference hearing on Monday, June 2, 2014, before the Honorable Judge Gilbert Figueroa.

Milo Candelaria was assaulted Friday, Feb. 21, in front of La Cantina in Kearny. He was transported by helicopter to University Medical Center in Tucson where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Both defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
