Love-Camp was recognized in surveillance video from the bus as a parolee from the Caliente (Nev.) Youth Camp, where he was sent after a juvenile conviction for robbery with a deadly weapon.

Potter was on the RTC bus with his fiancé - the mother of his two young children - at time of the shooting.

The trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 4. at the Regional Justice Center.
