A Las Vegas woman who has been charged with murder in regards to an incident in which an elderly man was pushed off a public bus has been released on bail.

Cadesha Bishop, 25, was released from jail on $100,000 bond on Wednesday. She's due back in court on May 23.

Bishop was charged with murder earlier this week following the death of Serge Fournier. The 74 year old man died earlier this month after he was pushed off a public bus in Las Vegas on March 21.

Fournier initially refused medical treatment but went to the hospital later that day. On May 3, police were notified that the man had died from his injuries. The coroner ruled his death was a result of the injuries he received from being pushed.

Homicide detectives later determined that Fournier had died from injuries sustained after being pushed.
