A Delaware state trooper charged in the armed robbery of a card game last month has been ordered held in jail until his trial. Trooper 1st Class HyunJin Kim had a preliminary hearing Friday on 11 counts of first-degree robbery and other charges.

Kim's defense attorney asked for a bond reduction but prosecutors said he could easily flee and the judge agreed.

Four people robbed the high-stakes card game at the Wild Quail Country Club. Police are still searching for three others.
