    A judge has ordered that a Houston man charged with capital murder in the slaying of a sheriff's deputy be held without bond.

    Robert Solis is accused of fatally shooting Harris County sheriff's Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal during a traffic stop Friday near Houston. Police say 42-year-old Dhaliwal was shot multiple times from behind. He was airlifted to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    The Houston Chronicle reports that District Judge Chris Morton said Monday that, if convicted, 47-year-old Solis could face the death penalty.

    Solis had a warrant for violating parole when Dhaliwal stopped him Friday. Authorities say they received "credible information" that Solis might have a mental illness or intellectual disability and ordered an evaluation.
