Judge increases Battles' bail to $1 million

Joshua Battles made his first appearance in court on attempted murder and other charges on Thursday morning. Judge Wayne Parrish doubled his bail during the hearing.

During the brief hearing, Battles entered not guilty pleas to all counts and denied all special allegations. He is accused of trying to kill his wife and children on March 22 by crashing the car they were all riding in.

Battles will have a preliminary hearing in Mariposa County Superior Court on April 9. His bail now stands at $1 million.
