Bond has been denied for a stripper known as "Pocahontas," who's charged with capital murder.

Luerissie Ashley Ross made her first appearance in probable cause court overnight. The 20-year-old is accused of luring two men in robberies, where they were shot. One of them died.

She is also charged with aggravated robbery. Investigators fear there may be other victims.

"So we believe that others exist, others may feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about coming forward," said C.P. Abbey with Houston Police Department homicide division. "But in a case like this, it is very important that we are able to understand everything she's been involved in."

Police have arrested another person in the deadly shooting case and have a third person of interest. Ross is scheduled for another court appearance later today.
