CHICAGO -- A man already jailed awaiting trial in a 2012 Chicago killing has been ordered held on $2 million bond in a shooting death two years earlier.

The Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1qcg5i7) reports that Cook County prosecutors allege that Luis Padin gunned down 22-year-old Jennifer Alvarado in September 2010 after she and her friends were asked their gang affiliation.

Jamie Santini, a prosecutor, says the women were in a car at the time when Padin fired into the back of the vehicle, fatally wounding Alvarado in the back.

Santini says Padin was identified by witnesses after the shooting.

Now 23, Padin is to go on trial within days in the 2012 killing.

He does not have a listed home telephone number. His attorney's name was not immediately available Sunday.
