Greek police say 22-year-old Bakari Henderson was beaten to death outside a bar July 7 on the Greek island of Zakynthos. Henderson's family says he had recently graduated from the University of Arizona and was in Greece working on a photo shoot to launch a clothing line.

Also Saturday, the last suspect charged in Henderson's death appeared in court and was ordered to remain in custody pending trial. The 33-year-old Serbian man is among nine people, all aged between 18 and 34, charged in the fatal beating.

Authorities believe the man jailed Saturday landed the first blow on Henderson.
