A judge denied bond for the man charged in Friday's fire at the Charlottesville Church of Christ.

Twenty-four-year-old Jason Santos appeared in court via satellite. Police arrested the deaf homeless man Friday at UVA Medical Center where he was treated for a cut to the hand. He's been charged with breaking and entering and petty larceny.

Police think the fire started when he broke in to cook food. He could still face arson charges.

Santos will remain in jail until his preliminary hearing on June 22.
