MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — The physician husband of a radio host slain in New Jersey in 2012 has lost his bid to have unrelated weapons charges dismissed.

James Kauffman is charged with two counts of possessing handguns without permits and single counts of possessing a weapon for an unlawful purpose and obstructing the administration of law or government function.

Kauffman was arrested June 13 at his Egg Harbor Township office. Authorities have said he brandished a handgun as agents executed search warrants at his office and home, but a hostage negotiator persuaded him to surrender. He remains jailed in Atlantic County.
