HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) -- One of the two men accused of a series of firebomb attacks on synagogues across northern New Jersey will have to come up with $4 million to get out of jail.

A judge on Thursday denied Aakash Dalal's request for lower bail.

The 21-year-old New Brunswick resident and Anthony Graziano have pleaded not guilty to aggravated arson, conspiracy and bias intimidation charges. Dalal also is accused of conspiring to kill the assistant prosecutor who was handling his case.

Prosecutors allege he helped plan the attacks that Graziano carried out.

The Record newspaper reports Dalal's lawyer on Thursday argued that point and said he had obtained more than 750 signatures from people in support of his client.

But the judge said there was no reason to lower the bail.
