CHICAGO -- A Cook County judge has denied bail to a man accused of providing the gun used in a shooting that left a Chicago mother of three dead.

Prosecutors on Wednesday said Marco Zavala gave a gun to accomplice Bryant Mitchell, who on April 26 fired shots at rivals they observed selling marijuana from a car. The 23-year-old Mitchell missed his target and hit 36-year-old Candice Dickerson, who was shopping for a cellphone in a nearby store.

Prosecutors say the 24-year-old Zavala, who is charged with first-degree murder, sold the gun after the shooting. On Tuesday, Mitchell was ordered held without bail on first-degree murder charges.

It wasn't immediately known if Zavala has a lawyer.
