DALLAS (May 24, 2013)—State District Judge Robert Burns ordered more alcohol monitoring Friday for Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent, who’s awaiting trial on an intoxicated manslaughter charge.

Brent is charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed Jerry Brown, Jr., a Cowboys' practice squad player.

Police say Brent's blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

Brent, who appeared in court Friday for the hearing, remains free on $100,000 bond, but prosecutors say he violated the terms of his release by setting off an alcohol monitoring device and failing to download data from it as required.

Burns said Friday that he would not raise Brent's bond, but ordered the extra monitoring.

Brent's career remains on hold pending the outcome of the case.

His trial date is scheduled for September on the intoxicated manslaughter charge.
