Bail denied for 2 men arrested in club stabbing

Bail was denied Friday for two men arrested in connection to a violent brawl that turned deadly outside a nightclub last month. 



Both 19-year-old Zaire Bansey and 18-year-old Peter Hajdari were present Friday when the judge denied them bail.



Hajdari's lawyer had asked the judge to set bail at $100,000, after Hajdari's family pooled their resources to come up with the money.



Police say Bansey and Hajdari are suspected of stabbing Dennis Rodriguez to death outside the Xtreme Lounge on Valentine Avenue. They say three others were shot, another was slashed in the face and a sixth person was beaten with a bat. One of those men is still fighting for his life.



Both men are charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.
