More than two months after 31-year-old Christy Bautista was found dead with 30 stab wounds inside her Northeast hotel room, a D.C. judge ruled the suspect accused of killing her will have to remain in jail. 

A DC Superior Court judge said Friday there was enough probable cause for the charge of first-degree murder against 43-year-old George Sydnor, who allegedly attacked Bautista soon after she checked into the Ivy City Hotel on March 31.

Bautista was reportedly in town to watch a concert.
