Judge Raises Bail for Suspected Shooter

BURLINGTON, IA (AP) -- A judge has dramatically increased bail for a man accused of gunning down a Burlington bicyclist earlier this month.   

The Burlington Hawk Eye reports that bail for Joshua Royer, 38, of Burlington, was increased to $1 million on Friday. He had been held on $200,000 bail.   

The increase came after a prosecutor filed formal court papers in Des Moines County District Court charging Royer with first-degree murder. Police say Royer shot Eddie Martin Cooper, 50, multiple times on the afternoon of Aug. 6 as Cooper was riding his bike.   

Investigators have said it doesn't appear Martin and Royer knew each other.

Authorities have declined to discuss a motive for the killing.
