Bond hearing continued for ex-con in McNair case

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A bond hearing for a convicted murderer accused of selling the gun used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair has been continued to Friday.

U.S. Magistrate Cliff Knowles in Nashville on Wednesday granted the continuance for 33-year-old Adrian J. Gilliam Jr. of La Vergne.

Public defender Hugh Mundy told the court Gilliam has asked him to interview a couple of new witnesses. Prosecutors did not object.

Gilliam is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Court documents say he admitted selling a 9 mm Bryco/Jennings pistol to Sahel Kazemi for $100.

Police have said Kazemi shot McNair at his condo July 4 before killing herself.

Gilliam, a car salesman, faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
